About Our Members
With over 400 members, Minnesota NAHRO membership includes agency commissioners, housing authorities, their staff plus profit and non-profit partners.
Our member agencies own and operate more than 20,000 public housing units across the state. In addition, our members administer affordable housing programs such as 31,000 Section 8 vouchers, over 10,000 rural development units, foreclosure prevention, homebuyer education and loan financing.

The populations served by these programs are often the most vulnerable including:
64 percent of the households are headed by seniors or those with disabilities
Nearly 75 percent of the residents of public housing have annual incomes of under $15,000.
One-third of public housing residents are children, many of whom are at high risk of homelessness or recently homeless;
