Workforce Housing Development Program
The Workforce Housing Development Program targets communities in Greater Minnesota where a shortage of housing makes it difficult for businesses to attract the workers they need.
This competitive grant program offers financial assistance to build market-rate residential rental properties for workers. Units of local government, nonprofits or the benefiting businesses must contribute $1 for every $2 provided by the program. Program grants provide up to 25 percent of the total project costs of a rental housing development.
