Swift County Housing & Redevelopment Authority (HRA)

The Swift County Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) is dedicated to serve the residents of Swift County, by advocating for fair housing, encouraging rehabilitation of existing housing, new housing construction for low to moderate incomes, promoting economic development, creating community development programs, and overall providing decent safe and affordable housing.

Services and Responsibilities:

HRA works with residents of the county to maintain, purchase, or help pay rent for affordable housing, and managing housing assets. Specific duties include:

  •  Maintaining 34 county-owned townhouses.
  •  Rehabilitating houses for reuse.
  •  Co-Funding Demolition of commercial, residential, or dilapidated properties.

Funding for the programs listed come from a variety of federal, state, and local resources.  A majority of the funding comes from federal housing and development grants.
