The Wabasha Port Authority is launching a housing committee to focus on bringing more housing to Wabasha.
During the spring of 2022 a local housing committee was formed during the Wabasha Port Authority strategic planning process.
Action minded individuals are meeting once a month to narrow in on the community’s specific housing needs, identifying community stakeholders, and attracting both developers, and funding.
The committee called W.A.T.C.H, Wabasha Area Team for Community Housing, is currently identifying land and buildings, both private and public, to repurpose local assets into a variety of housing.
The committee applied for and was accepted into the Minnesota Housing Partnership’s eighth housing institute.
The Partnership provides 18 months of technical assistance and an opportunity to apply for grant funds. For more information, go to https://www.wabasha.org/housing/.
