Redevelopment Incentive Grant Program

Since 2007, the Dakota County CDA has been encouraging community revitalization and assisting Dakota County cities with their redevelopment goals through a locally funded initiative called the Redevelopment Incentive Grant Program (RIG). To date, the CDA has awarded over $13 million to 64 redevelopment projects and 27 planning activities. The CDA’s RIG program has leveraged over $165 million in other public and private funding for redevelopment efforts in Dakota County.
