Led by Twin Cities LISC, in partnership with the City of Saint Paul, this initiative brought together grants, loans, and other financial resources in order to more quickly advance several priority projects on the eastern end of the Green Line.
Frogtown Rondo Home Fund
- Frogtown Rondo Home Fund website
- The Cultural Wellness Center’s culturally-specific, peer relationship-based approach to service navigation and accountability in support of the St. Paul Promise Neighborhood Rental Assistance program.
- Recruiting and retaining a neighborhood resident as a housing specialist at Wilder to serve St. Paul Promise Neighborhood families.
Land Acquisition Fund
The Funders Collaborative provided seed funding to the Twin Cities Community Land Bank for the purposes of acquiring strategic buildings or parcels of land along the Green Line for equitable development purposes.
The Funders Collaborative supported two studies related to the connections of housing and transit. In 2008, the Center for Transit Oriented Development prepared a feasibility study for creating a Central Corridor Acquisition Fund and the University of Minnesota examined the influence that regional rail and bus rapid transit corridors have on neighborhoods.
