After 44 years of its ancestor agencies, The Minneapolis Public Housing Authority became an independent city agency in 1991 with Executive Director, Cora McCorvey at the helm. MPHA implemented new programs and initiatives that still thrive today to improve housing quality, preservation and choices for a diverse population.
The landmark Hollman federal housing lawsuit was filed against MPHA and other agencies, a settlement was reached and mandated responsibilities were fulfilled.
MPHA transformed its public housing and Section 8 programs into industry ‘High Performer’ ranking in the top echelon of the nation’s 3,200 housing authorities.
