After 44 years of its ancestor agencies, The Minneapolis Public Housing Authority (MPHA) became an independent city agency in 1991 with Executive Director, Cora McCorvey at the helm. MPHA implemented new programs and initiatives that still thrive today to improve housing quality, preservation and choices for a diverse population.

MPHA has an ongoing commitment to energy reduction and has recently completed energy procurement contracts (EPC’s) to reduce gas, water and electrical consumption. MPHA is also in the early stages of implementing a new EPC that will replace exterior site lighting to LED. This project will be one of the first actions in the Better Buildings Challenge.
