Governor Tim Walz announced 36 cities, townships, and counties across Greater Minnesota will receive nearly $24 million in Small Cities Development Program (SCDP) grants. The grants will be used for residential and commercial property rehabilitation, upgrading public facilities, and other economic development projects.
"We are dedicated to making Minnesota the best state to live, work, and raise a family – no matter where in the state you call home," said Governor Walz. "These grants will boost our economy and help Greater Minnesota communities throughout the state grow and thrive."
"These grants not only help individual communities address their unique goals and needs, but also help bolster the state's overall economic position and its reputation as a great place for business and quality of life," said Lieutenant Governor Flanagan. "This is how we build strong communities and support Minnesotans across the state."
