Over $23 Million Received in Small Cities Development Program Funding

DSI was privileged to write the grant applications on behalf of the Cities of Madison, Minneota, and Big Stone Country with important initiatives to improve their communities. The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development awarded the Cities of Madison and Minneota and Big Stone County (on behalf of the Cities of Ortonville and Correll) nearly $1.8 million in Small City Development Program (SCDP) funding to address each community’s owner-occupied and rental rehabilitation needs. The owner-occupied and rental activities will encompass a city-wide target area and focus on addressing health and safety, energy efficiency, accessibility, and lead hazards.

It is the time of year to start planning for the SCDP 2025 Preliminary Application. We would be glad to help with your community development needs.
