Housing plans and accomplishments

Hennepin County receives federal funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for housing and community development projects in suburban cities. The county works with suburban cities to use these funds for a variety of purposes and projects that primarily serve low and moderate income residents and families.

Additionally, four suburban cities receive federal funding directly from HUD: Bloomington, Eden Prairie, Minnetonka, and Plymouth. These cities prepare their own plans and reports that are also included on this page.

Federal funding for housing and community development is provided to the county and partner cities through three primary federal programs:

  • Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
  • HOME Investment Partnerships
  • Emergency Solutions Grant

Below, you can find more information about how funding through these programs is used in Hennepin County, including plans, goals and accomplishments.

2018 performance and evaluation report

Every year, Hennepin County and partner cities report and evaluate how federal funding was used for housing and community development, as well as some public service activities, in suburban cities over the previous year.

This information is included in a document referred to as the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER). These reports are meant to show how the county and cities are working towards goals outlined in the five-year action plan. They serve to both satisfy federal requirements and provide information to the general public.
