The HRA helps provide affordable housing opportunities for those who are not adequately served by the marketplace, coordinates the City's efforts to preserve existing neighborhoods and promotes development and redevelopment that enhances Bloomington.
The HRA accomplishes its mission through various programs: rental assistance, housing rehabilitation loans, first-time home buyer assistance and other development and redevelopment programs. Funding comes from federal, state, regional and local sources. The Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) is governed by a five-member board appointed by the Mayor and approved by the City Council. For more info check out the HRA What We Do Handout.
The Bloomington Housing Action Team (formerly known as NOAH Workgroup) is a collaboration of housing advocates, owners or managers of rental properties, renters, HRA Commission members, City Council members, City staff and other stakeholders. The group meets regularly to discuss how to preserve and create affordable housing in Bloomington.
