Affordable Housing Resources

Greater Minnesota Housing Fund finances the creation of new affordable homes and the preservation of existing affordable housing across Minnesota.

GMHF does not have its own apartments or townhouses to rent to the public; instead, GMHF works with many partner organizations that do provide housing.

If you are looking for affordable housing in your area, we encourage you to use the following resources:


HousingLink has an online search tool which allows you to search for affordable housing listings, including Section 8 and other subsidized housing. HousingLink also maintains a list of Housing Authority waiting lists. You can subscribe to an alert email which will automatically notify you when a waiting list opens. Visit HousingLink to create a user profile and conduct your own housing search, or browse their housing resources page.

Housing Benefits 101

See Housing Benefits 101, a website built by the Minnesota Department of Human Services to learn about housing options across the state.

City and County Housing & Redevelopment Authorities (HRAs)

U.S. Housing & Urban Development (HUD) has compiled a list of all Minnesota city and county HRAs and PHAs (Public Housing Agencies). Visit HUD site for phone and email contact information for the city and county housing authorities.

Community Action Programs by County

You may find the housing services of your local Community Action Program (or CAP agency) a useful resource. Access their list of CAP agencies across Minnesota.
