In its 25+ year history, GMHF has become Minnesota’s leading nonprofit affordable housing lender in terms of financing activities and geographic footprint, working in all 87 counties of the state to provide low-cost financing to create and preserve single-family and multi-family homes.

Since it inception in 1996, GMHF has financed over 18,000 homes, providing affordable housing for 26,000+ Minnesotans. GMHF is driven to deliver
affordable housing by the knowledge that safe, stable housing improves life outcomes in health, employment, education and child development.

GMHF operates a family of funds, including the Revolving Development Loan Fund (the CDFI), the Minnesota Equity Fund and the Naturally Occurring Affordable Housing (NOAH) Fund. The three funds add tremendous capacity to Minnesota’s affordable housing field through providing flexible, low-cost
capital that builds housing developer capacity to produce and preserve affordable homes.
