St. Cloud Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) Overview
Purpose: To enhance the City of St. Cloud by providing affordable housing opportunities that promote self-sufficiency and collaboration for neighborhood revitalization.
The St. Cloud HRA was established in 1966 by the St. Cloud City Council.  It was determined at that time a need for substandard or blighted areas to be redeveloped, a need to establish adequate housing accommodations for veterans and servicemen and their families, and a need to establish decent, safe and sanitary dwelling accommodations for low income persons and their families at rentals they can afford.

The HRA administers federal, state and local funds for its housing programs.  It is under the direction of Executive Director, Louise Reis, and the Board of Commissioners who are appointed by the Mayor, consisting of seven members, of which three are also City Council members.

The major revenue sources for the HRA are a combination of annual grants and housing assistance payments from the Federal government, a local property tax levy and rental income.  There are currently 22 employees under the supervision of the Executive Director.
