GroundBreak believes the most effective way to ultimately improve outcomes for all residents, especially those from BIPOC communities that our systems typically exclude, is to concentrate our efforts on the aspirations of MSP residents who experience some of our region’s deepest and most persistent disparities and ensure that the outcomes of GroundBreak are realized on the ground in specific communities.
GroundBreak Coalition partners, including McKnight Foundation, US Bank, Bush Foundation, the Center for Economic Inclusion, and Hennepin County co-hosted a briefing on July 19, 2022 to provide an overview of GroundBreak and its goals, share more about who is involved and what’s next, and answer community questions.
The launch of GroundBreak Coalition on May 12 was an invitation to financial and corporate institutions, government, and philanthropic and nonprofit leaders to commit to unlocking the wealth potential of historically under-invested communities. The ultimate goal is to mobilize more than $2 billion over 10 years and deploy it to four areas: homeownership, rental housing, commercial development, and BIPOC entrepreneurship. Working together, we know we can position Minneapolis-Saint Paul to lead the nation in committing needed resources to achieve racial and economic justice.
