DEED awards $18.6 million (03/09/2006)
The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) has awarded $18.6 million in grants to 35 recipients through the Small Cities Development Program.

"The grants are financial booster shots that help maintain and improve the economic health of small communities all over the state," said DEED Commissioner Matt Kramer. "They fund improvements in housing and crucial infrastructure necessary to retain and attract business and industry, increase tax base and boost property values.

The grants may be used for a variety of projects, but most often fund improvements to owner-occupied and rental housing, improvements to commercial property or such essential public infrastructure as sewer, water and wastewater treatment projects.

To receive funding, projects must meet one of three conditions: benefit low- and moderate-income persons; eliminate slums or blight; or address urgent threats to public safety.

The grants are available to cities and townships with populations under 50,000 and counties with populations under 200,000. This year, 89 eligible cities and counties submitted proposals for community development projects totaling $50.8 million.

2006 Small Cities Development Program Grant Recipients included Hokah: $920,800 to rehabilitate 10 units of owner-occupied housing and wastewater treatment improvements.
