Two Minnesota Housing Agencies Receive Expansion Grants

NeighborWorks America invests in expanding services in Minnesota.

On Friday, September 23, NeighborWorks America announced $3.65 million in grant funding specifically designed for nonprofits to increase their services for underserved communities by expanding the geographic reach of programs that have already been successfully established. 

NeighborWorks America hopes this grant funding will help agencies with a track record of successful programs bring their initiatives to even more communities in need. Among the 25 organizations receiving grant funds are two Minnesota-based agencies: Southwest Minnesota Housing Partnership and Dayton’s Bluff Neighborhood Housing Services.

The Southwest Minnesota Housing Partnership works to provide a sufficient supply of adequate, safe, sanitary and affordable dwellings for the people of southwestern Minnesota and is a member of the Center’s Homeownership Advisor’s Network. 

Dayton’s Bluff Neighborhood Housing Services provides owner-occupied rehab lending and construction management, homeownership education counseling, financial entry assistance, purchase-rehab-resale and new construction. Both of these organizations are making valuable contributions towards enabling successful homeownership for residents of Minnesota. 

Congratulations to both organizations on receiving a NeighborWorks America grant to continue and expand your good work!
