The City wants to help Bloomington families stay in their homes. To achieve this goal, it has partnered with the Minnesota Homeownership Center to offer the Bloomington Homeownership Preservation Program. The BHPP will provide support to Bloomington homeowners who have trouble paying their mortgage or other housing expenses. BHPP offers foreclosure prevention advising and limited financial assistance. Financial assistance may include help with past due housing costs, depending on household income and housing cost burden. Homeowners must be able to demonstrate they can pay their housing expenses moving forward to be eligible for relief. The program launches in October 2022. For questions about the program, contact the Bloomington Housing and Redevelopment Authority at 952-563-8937 or visit www.hocmn.org.
