Emerging Developer Initiative (EDI) for Minnesota

Dedicated to the professional support of new housing developers from rural communities & Native Nations

MHP’s Emerging Developer Initiative (EDI) was created to support the emergence and professional development of new housing developers from rural communities and Native Nations in Minnesota. Dedicated to the success of entrepreneurs in the housing development industry, through education, mentorship, peer to peer learning and more, the EDI centers the participation of Black, Indigenous, and people of color, who comprise more than half of the EDI cohort membership.

MHP is bringing the Emerging Developer Initiative (EDI) to Northeast and North Central MN this summer with 5 monthly workshops starting in June 2024.

For more information on participation in the EDI contact: Donald Goggleye [at] mhponline.org


The inaugural EDI was centered in Northwest Minnesota in 2022. Programming included:

Regional Housing Challenges, Perspectives, and Solutions (9/22/22)

Where Are All Those Workers Driving in From and Why Can’t They Live Here? A Housing Economic Workshop (10/22)
