The Frogtown Rondo Home Fund (FRHF) brings together resident organizations, Community Development Corporations (CDCs), local government, community institutions, foundations, and other leaders to coordinate and significantly improve housing conditions in the Rondo and Frogtown neighborhoods. We focus particularly on preserving and producing affordable housing. Frogtown Rondo Home Fund anticipates that, through enhanced coordination, greater visibility, and new resources, the significant individual impacts of its members can be amplified. The activities of Frogtown Rondo Home Fund also improve alignment of housing goals with the objectives of St. Paul Promise Neighborhood and the Central Corridor Light Rail Transit project to achieve more comprehensive and equitable community development.
