The Housing Division of Planning and Economic Development (PED) Department works directly with the Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) to administer a wide variety of housing programs and financial resources. Together, they support the goal of providing quality housing for all residents of Saint Paul.
With our community development partners, we actively promote and support the growth of our neighborhoods by providing incentives and amenities that will attract new and retain current residents.
Annually, the City of Saint Paul sponsors the Minneapolis-Saint Paul Home Tour. This event is a great way to get ideas for your home remodeling projects.
Housing Action Plan, 2010-2013
The Housing Plan chapter of the Saint Paul Comprehensive Plan (2008-2018) calls for the preparation of an annual Housing Action Plan. The Housing Action Plan 2010-2013 includes a 2010 report on the market context of City/HRA housing activities, and outlines the implementation actions to be undertaken - including specific targets to be met over the course of the 2010-2013 time period in furtherance of the broader strategies and policies outlined in the Housing Plan and the Livable Communities Act.
The City of Saint Paul is currently working on an update to the three-year Housing Action Plan that will be adopted by the HRA Board in 2014.
