The Housing Division serves as the liaison to the Plymouth Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA). The HRA is an independent governmental entity created by the City Council. Money from the federal Community Development Block Grant program funds the city’s first time homebuyer loans, owner occupied rehabilitation loans and emergency home repair grants for seniors. These grants also provide funding for a number of social services partners as described in the current Hennepin County Consortium CDBG Action Plan. Additionally, the Housing Division administers the federal Section 8 rent assistance program and owns and operates two senior housing facilities.
The Housing Division works with residents, building owners and developers to assist in providing a broad range of housing options in the city. The division promotes and contributes to the economic health of the community through the creation and maintenance of affordable, life-cycle housing and active participation in the city’s development and redevelopment processes.
