COVID Update 12-17-20

Many HRAs have buildings whose residents are elderly or have underlying health conditions making them at high risk of adverse effects of COVID19. Some housing authorities have coordinated with their local public health departments to prioritize these residents when vaccine distribution begins.

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.  In the jurisdictions they serve, member agencies also address community revitalization and economic development needs.

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;
