The Metropolitan Council announced $5.2 million in grants Monday to increase the Twin Cities’ supply of affordable housing.

The Livable Communities funding is going to projects in St. Paul, Roseville, Minneapolis and Minnetonka. It includes the former Pioneer Press building — on Cedar Street in St. Paul — which will be converted into 143 apartments.

“For more than two decades, the Livable Communities Grant Program has turned polluted land across the Twin Cities into fertile ground for economic growth and opportunity and invested in our local communities,” Gov. Mark Dayton said in a statement. He added that the grants will create 70 jobs and a total of 560 new housing units.
