Hennepin County is seeking feedback on two plans that guide the use of funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for affordable housing and community development in suburban cities:
The 2020-2024 draft five-year consolidated plan sets high-level goals and priorities to guide the use of an estimated $20 million in federal funds for affordable housing and community development over the next five years.
The draft 2020 housing and community development action plan shows specifically how Hennepin County and partner cities plan to use approximately $5 million in federal funds on affordable housing and community development projects over the coming year.
