ABOUT D-TAP

Attend a Developer’s 101 training (Introduction) 
Attend a Developer’s 102 training (Advanced)

In every neighborhood in Minneapolis, there are small and medium size opportunities to enhance the built environment, improve the community, and earn a profit. In 2016 the City of created the Small Developers Technical Assistance Program (D-TAP) to promote the development of small, women and/or minority-owned developers, and to take advantage of those opportunities available in the City.

OBJECTIVES

The program has four main objectives:

  1. To build capacity and diversify the pool of small developers in Minneapolis.
  2. To educate new and inexperienced small developers in risk management and the real estate development process.
  3. To increase the likelihood of successful projects.
  4. To educate community partners and City officials on the real estate development process and help connect them to small developers.

TARGET POPULATION

The program is targeting, but is not limited to, the following audience:

In May, 2016 we launched our first D-TAP training, with 36 participants who learned the basics of real estate development, and some of the opportunities to work with the City of Minneapolis properties.

At this time we are in the process of planning the next course. Next course dates will be posted when available.

We are looking to diversify our pool of course instructors. If you are interested in becoming an instructor please email us.

Below you can download the Small Developers Training curriculum created by the City of Minneapolis. View the presentation from the Small Developers 101 Training.
