Thief River Falls workforce housing

Greater Minnesota Housing Fund has developed Workforce Housing 2.0, a pilot program to respond to shortages in affordable workforce housing in locations with high job growth but a lack of affordable housing for the existing and expanding workforce. The pilot program will test low- or no-subsidy workforce housing finance models. Interested developers are encouraged to apply by June 30, 2015.
