Economic Incentives

Grants Available for Downtown Improvements

The City operates a Downtown Code Improvement Program. The City will give qualifying businesses funds to make code improvements to their buildings. At the same time, the business or building owner must invest the company’s own funds to make upgrades to the exterior so that the building complies with the design guidelines for downtown.

To be eligible, buildings must be in the Downtown TIF district and must be designated for reinvestment in the downtown revitalization framework. Tenants cannot be permanently displaced by the work.

The Dakota County Community Development Agency will help applicants apply for the money, which comes from federal sources. Contact Rosemount Community Development at (651) 322-2051 for details.

State Programs

The state of Minnesota's Department of Employment and Economic Development has many programs to assist businesses.
