Business Assistance

The City of Minneapolis Economic Development division works to support four defined outcomes: 

  1. A diverse economy, 
  2. Attractive and vital neighborhood community centers, 
  3. A healthy tax base, and
  4. Strong job opportunities for Minneapolis residents.

We have developed a large array of tools to pursue these outcomes with a variety of strategies to assist businesses in different stages of development.

These tools fall within three broad categories:

  1. Business support (including business loans, technical assistance and facade grants),
  2. Commercial real estate development, and
  3. Workforce development.
