Municipalities, property owners, agencies and organizations who may be seeking funds to reduce the local costs of infrastructure construction, neighborhood revitalization, rental rehabilitation and other capital improvements that principally benefit suburban Ramsey County’s low and moderate income residents (LMI) are eligible to apply for funds available through the competitive funding pool. Ramsey County has two sources of funding available, CDBG and HOME. Applicants must be able to demonstrate that funds benefit LMI individuals and families either by locating the project in a low and moderate income census tract or other defined geographic area or by compiling income data on activity participants.
In the past, funds have been used to replace deteriorating water and sewer lines, build sidewalks from affordable rental housing to a neighborhood commercial center, install accessibility improvements in public buildings, rehabilitate affordable privately-owned rental housing, replace roofing and siding at a condominium complex, and acquire land for construction of single family homes by Habitat for Humanity.
How to Apply
Agencies and organizations interested in applying for funding will need to complete the Common Application.
