Housing Services

Serving 6,800 residents in nearly 100 communities

The Council’s Housing and Redevelopment Authority, Metro HRA, administers the federal Section 8 Housing Choice voucher program and related programs on behalf of nearly 100 suburban and rural communities throughout Anoka, Carver, and most of suburban Hennepin and Ramsey Counties. 

Metro HRA provides affordable housing for more than 6,800 seniors, families and people with disabilities.  All of Metro HRA's federally subsidized housing vouchers are in use and helping low-income families pay rent.

The Metro HRA is not taking Section 8 applications at this time, because our vouchers are fully utilized and our current waiting list has over 1,500 applicants.
