The system to apply for the frontline worker bonus is now open! The result of a bipartisan agreement, House Democrats successfully fought for a $500 million investment in these bonuses, which will go out to the Minnesotans who kept our state running during the darkest days of the pandemic. You can find more information here.
It is not a first-come first-served basis, but the application period will only be open through July 22, closing at 5pm. I encourage you to apply as soon as you can.
After processing and verification of the applications, as well as a 15-day period for denied applicants to contest those decisions, the final list of eligible applicants will be determined. Each eligible applicant will be provided with an equal payment. All applications will move through the process at the same time and payments will be forwarded for processing together.
June’s Town Halls
Though the possibility of a special session still hangs in the air, there’s a lot to discuss from the 2022 legislative session, and I want to hear from you. I’ll be hosting an in-person town hall tomorrow, Thursday, June 16 from 6:30-7:30pm. I’ll be joined by Sen. Dziedzic and Rep. Jordan at Van Cleve Park. Ideally, we’ll be holding it outside in beautiful weather, but we will move inside if necessary.
We’ll also be holding another one later this month - virtually - on Saturday, June 25 from 10:30-11:30am. You can RSVP for the login information here.
I’m looking forward to discussing our work with you - both what we accomplished and what remains. Regardless of whether you’re able to join us, please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have.
