Earlier this week Mayor Carter announced that thanks to incredibly generous contributions from Saint Paul philanthropic and private sector partners including the Knight Foundation, Ecolab Foundation, Saint Paul and Minnesota Foundation, Securian Financial, MN Wild, Xcel Energy, MNUFC and others, the Saint Paul Bridge Fund is now at $3.85 million.

The Housing and Redevelopment Authority board voted in favor of the fund last night, which will provide emergency relief for the small businesses and families in our community who need it most. Applications will open in the coming days.
