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, three suburban cities receive federal funding directly from HUD: Bloomington, Eden Prairie, 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.
