Elliot Park Neighborhood
As one of the oldest neighborhoods in Minneapolis, Elliot Park offers downtown living with an abundance of amazing historical architecture. The neighborhood is home to approximately 6,500 residents from diverse backgrounds and experiences and is growing rapidly as new housing is developed. As the neighborhood grows, the community has encouraged a mixture of affordable and high-end housing that retains and values the diversity of our community members. Elliot Park is home to many well-known institutions and organizations, including Hennepin County Medical Center, Augustana, North Central University, Catholic Charities, Minnesota Adult & Teen Challenge, House of Charity, Kraus-Anderson, and more.
The Neighborhood Organization
Elliot Park Neighborhood, Inc. (EPNI) was established in 1976 with a primary focus of renovation and building new housing. The focus of the organization has shifted over the years and our mission now centers on building community vitality by connecting and empowering neighbors. Our priorities include addressing food insecurity, preventing displacement of our residents, convening the community to weigh in on proposed development, and addressing public safety concerns. A 15-member Board of Directors comprised of residents and institutional representatives governs the organization. For more information on the current priorities, projects, and programs, visit www.elliotpark.org

Your support, coupled with your neighbors’ support is what fuels our organization. Please consider making a financial donation to EPNI today to support our work in responding to community need.
