INVEST Program

Date Posted: 05-16-2019

The Scott County CDA is pleased to announce funding awards
for its new INVEST Deferred Loan Program
for workforce housing development


Core Crossings is a 59 unit apartment building located in Shakopee with a mix of spacious one to three bedroom units, with retail on the first floor.  Located near the busy hub of Southbridge Crossings, it will be close to jobs, transit and schools.  This community will have affordable rents for families earning 60% or less of the adjusted median income for the area.  The developer will be seeking a tax credit award to help fund the project. 

BELLE COURT, Belle Plaine

Belle Court is two 36 unit apartment buildings offering studio and two bedroom apartments that will fill a need for workforce and market rate rental homes in Belle Plaine.  While fourteen of the units will have rents for families earning 50% or less of the adjusted median income for the area, all of the units will be affordable market rate, as rents do not exceed reasonable rent standards as determined by the CDA.  The City welcomes this new development.
