Development request for proposals
Hennepin County offers several grant opportunities and programs to support housing and development projects throughout the county. To maximize county resources and make the application process more efficient for those seeking funding, the county solicits an annual coordinated development request for proposals (RFP) every year. The RFP is typically posted during the first week of January. Programs that may be included in the annual RFP through the county’s Community Works department and Housing and Redevelopment Authority are listed below with more information.
