What We Do

Central Minnesota Housing Partnership, Inc. (CMHP) is a regional non-profit 501(c)(3) organization originally created and incorporated in May 1993. Soon after incorporation, the organization received its non-profit designation. In February 1994, CMHP was designated as a Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO) by the Minnesota Housing Finance Agency. Pauline Carlson, CMHP’s inaugural Executive Director, was instrumental in creating CMHP, as well as growing the organization to what it is today.

CMHP was created with the goal of preserving, improving, and increasing the affordable housing stock in Central Minnesota. These goals have been achieved over the years through a variety of innovative programs and services that have developed and provided affordable housing to low and moderate-income households. We continue to strive to achieve the same goals today that was set from the start.
