FEATURED UPDATE

We partnered with the Lake Street Council to establish a $1 million Healthy Lake Street Fund. The fund will help local small businesses and nonprofits that serve the community with core health and medical services rebuild.

We are providing a $1 million grant to the Northside Achievement Zone to fund the Northside Partners for Food Delivery Program. The program is designed to address food insecurity experienced by North Minneapolis families.

As part of our revitalization efforts in the Twin Cities we are helping rebuild businesses, including the Seward Pharmacy in South Minneapolis. This project is one of many that our local grant partnerships will support.
