Housing and Redevelopment Authority
The Hennepin County Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) was established in 1987 to serve the housing, economic development, and redevelopment needs of the citizens of Hennepin County and its municipalities. In 2016, the board, acting as the HRA, unanimously elected District 2 Commissioner Linda Higgins as chair and District 5 Commissioner Randy Johnson as vice chair.
