Nonprofits get $2.7 million in state grants to help emerging businesses 2.10.2015 MinnPost
Eleven Minnesota nonprofits will share $2.7 million in state funding to provide more help to "emerging businesses." The state picked nonprofits that "provide business assistance to targeted groups, including women, minorities, rural residents, innovative startups, entrepreneurs and inventors." Funding for the grants came in the past legislative session. "These nonprofit organizations help businesses start and survive during the early stages of the business development," said DEED Commissioner Katie Clark Sieben. The two-year grants, from the state's Business and Community Development Competitive Grant Program, went to: African Development Center, Minneapolis, $96,000 – The group provides training, lending and technical assistance to help African immigrants and refugees achieve economic prosperity in Minnesota.

Gustavus Adolphus gets $25 million donation, its largest ever 19.8.2015 MinnPost
Gustavus Adolphus College has snagged its largest donation ever: $25 million from an unnamed family that has five proud, and apparently well-off, Gusties. The money will be used to help pay for a $65 million renovation and expansion of the college's Alfred Nobel Hall of Science, says the  Mankato Free Press. Rochester could use one of those big donors: After corralling $585 million in state aid for its Destination Medical Center project (overall, a $6 billion, 20-year project), the city now will ask lawmakers for state help on a $16 million airport upgrade, says the  Rochester Post-Bulletin.  Rochester International apparently doesn't meet Homeland Security requirements, and hence might lose its international designation. Officials would like $5 million from the next bonding bill, to expand the customs space. Tiny Benson, Minn., pop. 3,240, makes a Washington Post list of cities where "over-income families" are living in public housing even though there is a waiting list of low-income families hoping for ...

Overlooked ruling on Fair Housing Act deserves applause 30.6.2015 MinnPost
The following is an editorial from the   Mankato Free Press . Hidden among the major decisions the Supreme Court issued late last week on gay marriage and Obamacare was another important ruling. But the impact of Thursday’s Fair Housing Act decision is significant and will be long lasting in helping to prevent housing discrimination and segregation. The idea of segregation or even discrimination in housing today may seem unlikely if not impossible to many. After all, the The Fair Housing Act of 1968 and a host of protections and programs to encourage low income housing and forbid discrimination have long been in place. But not all discrimination or segregation is obvious or even intentional — and that’s what the Supreme Court ruling, which arose out of a Texas case, focused on. For much of the 20th century, racial segregation was obvious and systemic. Home loan processes, local ordinances, state laws and everyday practices ensured that minorities and the poor were kept in certain neighborhoods. Even ...
