County HRA

Providing Resources to Expand and Diversify the County's Economic Base and to Improve its Housing Stock

St. Louis County's Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) was created in 1988 in accordance with Minnesota Statutes and has the same powers as a municipal HRA. Its operation territory includes communities in St. Louis County that do not have a municipal HRA, and if invited by a community, St. Louis County HRA may also operate in communities that do have a municipal HRA.

HRA activities are coordinated under the St. Louis County Planning and Community Development Department. Unlike municipal HRA's, St. Louis County HRA does not own or operate public housing or administer tenant-based rental assistance programs. 

The St. Louis County Board of Commissioners serves as the governing body of the HRA Board and the county administrator serves as its executive director.

The St. Louis County HRA works to:

  • Facilitate development of new workforce and homelessness housing and rehabilitation of the existing affordable housing stock.

The HRA maintains credible funding relationships with federal and state agencies, such as the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Minnesota Housing Finance Agency (MHFA), and the Greater Minnesota Housing Fund.

The HRA’s coordination with these agencies bolsters local project selection in very competitive funding processes. To further support its goals, the HRA provides technical assistance to the many smaller communities in the county that do not have the staff resources for housing development.
