Help set priorities for federal housing funds in suburban Hennepin County
Each year, Hennepin County receives around $6 million from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to fund affordable housing and community development activities in suburban cities.
To guide the use of these funds, Hennepin County works with cities, residents, and other partners to set goals and priorities for affordable housing and community development as part of a five-year action plan.
We are now in the process of developing the next five-year plan for the years 2020-2024, and need your input.
