In 1970, a forward-looking group of business executives in Minneapolis created a new organization to address the shortage of affordable housing in the Twin Cities. As a result, the Greater Metropolitan Housing Corporation was formed.
GMHC’s mission is to preserve, improve and increase affordable housing for low and moderate income individuals and families, assist communities with housing revitalization as well as create and carry out demonstration projects.
The nationally-recognized Greater Metropolitan Housing Corporation continues to hold fast to its mission and has never been more involved in responding to the pervasive problem of substandard housing in the Twin Cities.
Study after study has shown that quality housing and neighborhood commitment is instrumental in forging the neighborhoods that enrich and empower the lives of all residents.
GMHC is at the forefront of contributing, supporting and actively promoting affordable, quality housing for residents of the Greater Metropolitan Twin Cities.
