Nfld HRA funds “workforce housing” programs
The City of Northfield has a fund to help low and moderate income families with downpayment assistance. Northfield HRA Housing Coordinator Janine Atchison said, “this is basically working toward the goal of providing workforce housing in Northfield. It’s a loan of up to $10,000”. More information is on the City’s website ci.northfield.mn.us. The HRA is also exploring the development of 11 acres they own near the soccer fields, “it’s in very preliminary stages, there’s no actual plan yet but they are, in fact, working towards the goal of developing additional housing”. Atchison says there are plenty of people who work in Northfield but can’t afford to live here. The goal is to close the gap in workforce housing.
