An Update for Our Community
On May 14, 2021 Governor Walz signed an executive order to end Minnesota’s statewide mask requirement, aligning Minnesota with new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance on face coverings.
With masks coming off we are excited to enter our new normal! We were able to meet or exceed client service expectations during the pandemic, so while we figure out the next stage, please continue to call, email, mail, or use the drop box. Some services available by appointment.
As the owner and operator of over 1,100 units of affordable housing throughout Washington County, we play a critical role ensuring that all our neighbors have a good, safe, and decent place to call home. But community development goes beyond housing. From facilitating the growth of small businesses to funding critical services for the homeless.
