The public housing units developed by MPHA and its partners consists of very attractive and comfortable  suburban homes with a range from two to five bedrooms in communities such as Minnetonka, Eden Prairie, Watertown, Woodbury, Chaska, Columbia Heights, Golden Valley, Moundsview and Plymouth and elsewhere in the metropolitan area. You must be on MPHA’s family public housing waiting list to be considered for housing in these units.
