Montevideo home gets grant funds

MONTEVIDEO -- The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development today awarded Minnesota more than $1 million in grants to help public and assisted housing residents find employment; connect with needed services; and help the elderly and people with disabilities maintain independent living.

The funding also allows the grantees to retain or hire "service coordinators" or case workers to work directly with these HUD-assisted families to connect them to the supportive services that meet their individual needs.

Montevideo Methodist Home Inc., which operates Brookside Manor assisted living in Montevideo, is the recipient of $26,000 in funding.
