A unique affordable housing project is in the works for multiple sites across the city of Minneapolis.
The Minneapolis Public Housing Authority’s (MPHA) Family Housing Expansion project will create deeply affordable housing opportunities in several different neighborhoods throughout Minneapolis. The project will increase the supply of affordable housing where it typically is not present and continue to invest in the areas where it is. The project will truly be an investment within each community with a commitment to construct quality, well-managed affordable housing within the City of Minneapolis.
THE “SCATTERED SITES” PROJECT
In total, there are approximately 8,000 households on the MPHA’s family housing waitlist. The Family Housing Expansion project will not only help address aging housing but will increase the total number of housing units available in the city
16 different sites will become home to new residential buildings throughout Minneapolis. Five sites will be in North Minneapolis, two in Northeast Minneapolis, one in Southwest Minneapolis, and eight within South and Southeast Minneapolis. Across the 16 sites there will be 84 new units of housing added including 24 two-bedroom and 58 three-bedroom units.
All units within the different buildings will be available to households that earn 30% of the area median income (AMI) with 16 units being available for individuals within Hennepin County’s homeless assistance program.
