The Minnesota Homeownership Center promotes and advances successful homeownership in Minnesota

We link individuals, homeownership advisors and industry stakeholders. We support community-based organizations with the structure and funding to develop and deliver culturally-responsive homeownership education and advising. And we collaborate and lead the development of innovative homeownership programming. We believe equitable access to homeownership is essential to strong communities and creates opportunities for generations to come.

The Minnesota Homeownership Center was created in 1993 by a coalition of organizations dedicated to making homeownership achievable for all Minnesotans. The diversity of this collaboration – non-profit organizations, REALTORS, mortgage finance agencies, local governments and other interests – is still represented in the diversity of the Center’s board:
