An Official Neighborhood Association for the City of Minneapolis.

Cedar Riverside Community Council (CRCC) works in close partnership with our constituents to improve access to resources and opportunities that help our community members make progress where they say it’s most needed. Cedar Riverside residents, businesses, workers, students, nonprofits, and large institutions share their vision and passion to raise up neighborhood priorities and identify solutions. 

CRCC and its many partners are able to leverage city funds, charitable giving, foundation and government grants, and community assets to deliver programs and resources to address community identified priorities.

Since 2008, when it incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, CRCC has directed more than $1.75 million toward diverse initiatives including: community outreach, housing development, education programming, youth opportunities, eldercare, healthcare, safety issues, immigrant support, parks and green spaces, electoral forums, business assistance, community development, and neighborhood beautification.

We All Live Here!  Join Us and Help the CRCC Set Future Priorities!
