The Neighborhood STAR Program awards loans and grants for capital improvement projects in Saint Paul neighborhoods, and is funded with 50% of city sales tax proceeds. Of that 50% program allocation, 60% of the funds is for loans and 40% is for grants.
Funds are awarded annually through a separate competitive application processes. One process is held for small grants, and one for large grants and loan/grant combinations.
The total amount of funding available varies annually and is generally determined in the spring of each year. For more information, please contact Michele Swanson.
