Missing Middle Housing Pilot Program

The Missing Middle Housing Pilot Program provides funding to develop 3 to 20-unit residential housing in Minneapolis through the Missing Middle request for proposal (RFP). The City is releasing the RFP after conducting a community information sharing and gathering period for feedback on the program design. Comments were incorporated into the pilot.

The Missing Middle RFP submissions were due at 12:00 p.m. (noon) on Wednesday, September 11, 2019.

An in-person technical assistance training was held on Wednesday, July 31, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at University of Minnesota Robert J. Jones Urban Research and Outreach-Engagement Center (UROC), 2001 Plymouth Ave North, Minneapolis, MN 55411.
