A Model Partnership

Organization aims to develop affordable housing with a focus on sustainability and energy conservation

The Greater Minnesota Housing Fund (GMHF), based in St. Paul, supports efforts that provide affordable housing options for families and individuals throughout the state.

This includes young people just getting started in life and parents working to support their children, along with new immigrants, multigenerational households and the formerly homeless.

Founded in 1996 through a joint effort of two local foundations, the organization addresses an urgent need for decent, affordable housing in greater Minnesota, which includes the 80 counties outside the Twin Cities metropolitan area. In 2011, GMHF created the Minnesota Equity Fund to provide equity to development throughout the entire state, including the Twin Cities metropolitan area.
