Governor Dayton and the politicians have continually chosen to keep our families and children in extreme poverty instead of raising the MFIP (MN Family Investment Plan) grants
Since 1986, the MFIP grants have not been raised. Families have been receiving the same monthly amount for 27 years. A Family of 2 received $437/ month in 1986 and still receives $437/ month in 2013.
Since 1986, the cost of living has doubled, workers have gotten raises, and social security benefits have gotten raises while families receiving assistance have not! This is criminal!
Please join us to send a message to the Governor that our families need an increase now!
