For Public Review and Input

Actions of Red Lake County Social Services are dictated by Statute.  Where Statute defers to County specific plans, the social service office develops plans to meet the needs of the community.  Below are plans that detail how specific needs are met or funds are utilized and, where indicated, for plans on which we specifically seek out the community's input.  We welcome suggestions on how to improve our plans at any time.  This is the link to complete currently available surveys, which will help us improve our services.  Continue reading on this page to see documents available for public review and input.

Some of these plans may currently be under development or are subject to ongoing revisions, so if there are sections that appear blank it may be that those details are still being worked out, or that a particular item does not apply to our service area.

 For more information about what the Social Service Block Grant (SSBG), including the Vulnerable Children and Adults Act, plan is you may review the SSBG bulletin issued by the Department of Human Services.  It includes a State contact person for public comment and feedback of the State's plan for use of the Social Services Block Grant/VCA funding.

 If the plan you would like to review is not available below or you cannot get it to open or download, please contact reception@mail.co.red-lake.mn.us to have a copy emailed or mailed to you.  Thank you!
