St. Paul PHA is offering up to 50 Project-based Vouchers through the Consolidated RFP with an additional 20 Project-based Vouchers specifically for United States Department of Housing and Urban Development - Veteran Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH). Applications will be accepted through Minnesota Housing’s Multifamily Customer Portal
How to Apply:
  • After logging into the Multifamily Customer Portal, select the “2021 St. Paul PHA Voucher Funding Round” to create the application checklist, including the required questionnaire.
  • New to the Multifamily Customer Portal or need a refresher? Please review the Portal Resources webpage.
  • Applications are due by noon on Thursday, July 15
What You Need to Know:
  • Applicants do not need to apply for capital funding through the Consolidated RFP to be eligible for vouchers. 
  • Applicants who are applying for capital funding in conjunction with a voucher request must submit a separate voucher application in the Multifamily Customer Portal in the “2021 St. Paul PHA Voucher Funding Round”.
  • If an applicant applies for funding from both St. Paul PHA and Minnesota Housing in the Consolidated RFP, they will need to be approved for at least a portion of their Minnesota Housing funding before the project will be considered for a Project-based Voucher award by St. Paul PHA.
