St. Paul, MN – State Representative Kaela Berg (DFL - Burnsville) 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.
“I’m incredibly proud that I supported this legislation which appropriated a record amount of funding for our state’s nursing homes,” said Rep. Berg. “It’s critical that we do all we can to support our most vulnerable residents and the workers who care for them. With this funding we can say unequivocally that we are doing just that.”
Of these initial investments, $682,882 was delivered to Ebenezer Ridges Geriatric CC in Rep. Berg’s district on Aug. 1.
