The Pine River Housing and Redevelopment Authority of Pine River, Minnesota was formed by the city of Pine River in 1968 to pursue the goal of adding housing in our community for low income and elderly residents.

As a result of nearly five years of effort on the part of a five-member board of directors (one of whom is still serving), ten ranch style family homes and a 30 unit apartment building, Norway Brook Apartments, were built in late 1973. Five years later, another 30 unit senior apartment buidling, Heartland Apartments, was built in late 1978.

The HRA manages these 70 units and also works to facilitate further housing development in the community by partnering with independent developers to build more rental housing for lower income level tenants. To date, a 12 unit townhouse project, Pine River Square (1997), Built and managed by CEPCO, of Hopkins, MN has been accomplished through using the Tax Credit Financing Program through Minnesota Housing Finance Agency. The HRA partnered again with CEPCO, to build another 12 units of townhouses, Kinler Square Townhouses, to be opperated as affordabe housing rentals.
