As the lead agency and direct recipient of federal funds for the Hennepin County Consortium representing suburban Hennepin County, in cooperation with 41 suburban communities, listed are the plans, goals and accomplishments for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership (HOME) and Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG) programs. The four consortium cities, Bloomington; Eden Prairie, Minnetonka and Plymouth, are individual entitlement recipients, receiving funding of CDBG funds directly from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

This federal funding was used to purchase, rehabilitate, and provide homebuyer assistance to eligible occupying homeowners. NSP quarterly reports are posted to satisfy federal requirements and provide information to the general public.
