At its June meeting, the board of the Minnesota Housing Finance Agency discussed resources for supportive and workforce housing, a rental pilot program aimed to help exploited families suffering gender-based violence, and suggestions for the 2018 Affordable Housing Plan.
To start the meeting Commissioner Mary Tingerthal introduced the newest addition to the Minnesota Housing board: Damaris Hollingsworth. An architect and native of Sao Paulo, Brazil, Hollingsworth shared that she studied in this country and worked for several firms before her current position as Vice President for THOR Design Plus. Hollingsworth said she values affordable housing for the stability it brings families and communities.
