Minnesota Green Communities is a statewide collaboration of the Family Housing Fund, the Greater Minnesota Housing Fund, and Enterprise Community Partners. The initiative fosters the creation of healthier, more energy-efficient affordable housing in Minnesota. Since its inception in 2005, Minnesota Green Communities has proven that green building – whether in new construction or rehabilitation – can promote residential health, reduce environmental impact, and inspire economic growth of a community.
