Help set priorities for federal housing funds in St. Louis Park

Post Date:October 04, 2019

Each year, Hennepin County receives around $6 million from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for suburban housing and development projects and services.

To guide the use of these funds, Hennepin County works with cities, residents, and other partners to set goals and priorities for affordable housing and community development in suburban communities as part of a five-year action plan. These priorities also help shape broader affordable housing efforts by the county and partner cities.

Understanding your personal experiences and priorities will help inform how federal funds are invested in housing and community development activities and services in your community. The next five-year plan is now under development and there are several ways you can provide feedback.

Learn more about the plan.
