GRASSROOTS

Why RPAMN?

We formed RPAMN, a 501c6 nonprofit, to advocate for and represent small, residential living providers in Minnesota. Lacking consistency across counties, decreasing rate structures and lack of transparency, constantly changing rules, plus difficult competitive wage standards with increasing expectations due to the pandemic, Minnesota Department of Health and the Department of Homeland Security practices have made it overwhelmingly difficult for small providers to be successful.

OBJECTIVES

Achievement Goals

Traction in our cause to highlight how these newly implemented changes negatively impact our businesses and the clients we serve in the community.

Additionally, to challenge the concept that we as providers do not fit the requirements or label of an Assisted Living Facility.

To unite providers and continue to work with legislators and lobbyists. We are at the forefront of communication with DHS and MDH to move our concerns forward and have them addressed.
