Invest Saint Paul Priority Grants: Round 2


On December 1, 2009 the Saint Paul Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) requested grant proposals from non-profit community based organizations to help neighborhoods address challenges resulting from foreclosures and disinvestment in specific areas of Saint Paul. 

The funding goals of the grant program are to:

  • Build upon work previously undertaken in ISP/NSP areas, including efforts that were funded with the first round of ISP funding
  • Complement future ISP and/or NSP investments and position neighborhoods to maximize the benefits from those investments
  • Build upon and strengthen community assets
  • Address challenges and mitigate deficiencies resulting from foreclosure crises and chronic disinvestment
  • Increase property values and enhance curb appeal
  • Combat unemployment and underemployment
  • Engage the community including neighborhood youth
  • Strengthen collaborations with community partners including other non-profit, for-profit, public, and/or private entities
  • Leverage additional financial resources and promote investment
  • Undertake efforts that are sustainable and produce long-term impact

Applications were due on December 21, 2009 and on January 28, 2010 the HRA awarded $600,000 to 15 grantees.
