Small Cities Development Program


The Small Cities Development Program (SCDP) helps cities and counties with funding for housing, commercial rehabilitation and public infrastructure. The projects must meet one of three federal objectives.

  • Benefit people of low and moderate incomes
  • Eliminate slum and blight conditions
  • Eliminate an urgent threat to the public health or safety

SCDP provides housing grants to local grantees for the purpose of rehabilitating local housing stock. Grantees may use these funds for owner-occupied, rental (single family or multi-family). Grantees may also apply for commercial rehabilitation. These funds may help commercial building owners to rehabilitate façade improvements, code violations and health and safety issues. Target areas may apply.

Southwest Minnesota Housing Partnership has been contracted to administer the SCDP program in the following areas:
