This project used GIS to produce a series of maps to analyze various aspects of the funding from the Neighborhood Revitalization Program in the Powderhorn Park neighborhood. The project entailed comparing various attributes of residential parcels for those who did and did not receive NRP grants. Further, the study sought to determine whether or not those that received down payment grants were still in their homes and comparing this to the neighborhood as a whole. Final research questions included determining how distance affected housing value from a given grant property, and determining a quantitative measure of effectiveness for NRP grants.
Prepared on behalf of the Powderhorn Park neighborhood by the Minneapolis Neighborhood Information System (MNIS), administered by the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs at the University of Minnesota.
