Goodhue County Announce ‘Bring It Home’ Initiative
Goodhue County is home to a strong groundbreaking history and we know within our County are the skills, tools, and expertise to bring affordable housing options back to the area. Such is why Goodhue County is now accepting applications for the use of trust funds and statewide affordable housing aid (SAHA) to assist in building, preserving, and establishing affordable housing options within the County.
In 2018, Goodhue County established the Affordable Housing Trust Fund (AHTF) through our partner Southern Minnesota Multi-County Housing and Redevelopment Authority (SEMMCHRA). The Trust is dedicated to preserving and creating affordable housing opportunities for households with lower incomes. Over $650,000 of funds are available from the trust fund or statewide affordable housing aid for these affordable housing projects.
To apply to use these funds, the applicant must be a local government, nonprofit, landlord or developer in addition to other requirements. To apply and see a full list of requirements, please visit www.semmchra.org/community-development/
We ask members of the public to contact their local government, contractors, or favorite nonprofit and encourage them to apply for these funds. Applications close April 1st, 2024. This is an equal housing opportunity program.
