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, over $12.9 million has been awarded to 63 projects and 27 plans. This funding has leveraged nearly $120 million in other public and private funding for redevelopment efforts.

The Dakota County CDA is accepting applications for the 2021 fiscal year (July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021). All cities in Dakota County are eligible to apply. Maximum grant for plans is $15,000 and maximum grant for projects is $250,000. Please read the “RIG Policy and Procedures Guide” before submitting an application.
