Minnesota Housing awards funding for two affordable housing projects in Rochester

"

Minnesota’s housing finance agency has awarded more than $25 million in funding to a pair of affordable housing projects in Rochester.

Support for the two projects, which together include 106 units of affordable and workforce housing, was announced Thursday as part of a $254 million package benefiting 74 housing projects across the state.

The funding selections represent the largest round of overall investments that Minnesota Housing has ever helped finance, with $572 million in housing developments set to benefit from the package.

The investments come as Minnesota continues to face a significant housing shortage, particularly for low- to moderate- income residents. According to figures from the state, nearly half a million households in Minnesota spend more than 30 percent of their income on housing.

“This investment means more Minnesota families will be able to live in a home they can afford in a community of their choice, and more businesses will be able to attract and retain the employees they need to thrive,” said Gov. Tim Walz. “While this funding puts us on the right path forward, we still have work to do. I look forward to our continued conversation on how to provide housing options that meet the full spectrum of needs of Minnesota’s growing population.

The two local projects selected are Century Heights, a 76-unit project from Rochester-based Joseph Development, and Mayowood Apartments, a 30-unit development from Center City Housing Corporation.

Century Heights will be located on the west side of East Circle Road Northeast, just east of Viola Road Northeast (behind the fire station).

  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
