This initiative is designed to foster the creation of affordable, healthier, and more energy-efficient housing throughout the state of Minnesota.


We are grateful to be part of the team on many Minnesota Green Communities projects because building healthy, affordable housing is the right thing to do—for the residents and the broader community.  Training our work crews and paying attention to detail on the job site is one step in making sure residents have healthy homes and affordable utility bills, and we are building towards a more sustainable community.
–Dale Forsberg, Watson Forsberg


Minnesota Green Communities is a statewide collaboration of the Greater Minnesota Housing Fund, the Family Housing Fund, and Enterprise.  Minnesota Green Communities is by far the largest green building program in Minnesota with more than 4,000 units completed, under construction, or in development.

The National Green Communities initiative was launched in 2004 by Enterprise.  In just five years, the initiative invested $700 million to build and preserve nearly 16,000 green affordable homes – while transforming local, state, and national policies.
