Keeping Communities Strong by Preserving Public Housing

SPECIAL REPORT PUBLISHED MAY 2018
Minnesota NAHRO in partnership with MHP

 

This report highlights the populations served by public housing, and the impact of the Publicly Owned Housing Program (POHP) in preserving in-demand community assets across the state.

From Greenbush to Worthington, Ely to Austin, public housing provides shelter to more than 6,500 Minnesotans statewide. With the vast majority of households headed by seniors and people with disabilities, public housing provides safe and affordable homes to low-income people who would otherwise lack adequate housing. A new MHP report highlights the populations served by public housing, and the impact of the Publicly Owned Housing Program (PHOP) in preserving in-demand community assets across the state. Minnesota NAHRO partnered with MHP to issue this new report and many thanks to the HRAs featured.
