St. Paul, MN – State Representative Heather Edelson (DFL - Edina) announced that on Aug. 1, local nursing homes received a significant amount of new state funding as part of a bipartisan agreement to stabilize a sector of the economy that is facing financial hardship. Local nursing homes will receive another significant one-time payment on Aug. 1, 2024.

“Supporting our most vulnerable Minnesotans and the workers who care for them was a top priority for me this session,” said Rep. Edelson. “I’m proud of these critical investments which will directly benefit local residents, families, and workers.”

Of these initial investments, $566,404 has been delivered to Edenbrook of Edina in Rep. Edelson’s district on Aug. 1.
