Affordable housing resources

Food, water, shelter—housing is a basic need and affordability is an essential. Today, affordable housing is an issue on the forefront of people’s minds and Bloomington is no exception.

Earlier this year, the City approved an opportunity housing ordinance to preserve and create new affordable housing opportunities in Bloomington. The goal is to provide more affordable housing units for working families, seniors and other residents.
