ASLIS receives grant funding from the Minnesota Department of Human Services, Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services Division. The grant funds are dedicated to improving quality interpreting services in Greater Minnesota. What does “Greater Minnesota” mean? If you live in any part of the state that is not in the core 7-county Twin Cities metro area (that is, outside of Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, and Washington counties).
Some of our programs work to help interpreters living in Greater Minnesota. We create opportunities for interpreters to improve their skills and meet Deaf community needs. Some of our programs are for Deaf people who live in Greater Minnesota. We help connect Deaf people to interpreting services for 12-Step meetings and for funerals.
