Housing and Community Development


The City of Winona Housing and Community Development Division is dedicated to promoting decent and affordable housing, marketing sites for redevelopment, business development, improving our aging housing stock, and assisting low to moderate income homeowners.  We accomplish this through encouraging energy sustainability, expanding homeownership, and enhancing the quality of life in Winona.  Through collaboration with other organizations and connecting with members of the Winona Community we can meet the needs of Winona residents and envision a future with beautiful, healthy neighborhoods.  Building Our Winona Together!
