Board of Directors

The Minnesota Homeownership Center was created in 1993 by a collaboration of organizations concerned about making homeownership affordable and sustainable for an extended range of Minnesotans. The diversity of this collaboration – housing non-profit organizations, REALTORS, mortgage finance agencies, local governments and other interests – is still represented in the diversity of the Center’s board:
