Workforce Housing

has been identified as the number one challenge for economic development in Cook County.  The EDA has conducted a number of studies to determine the highest and best use of our resources to address this need.  See the reports here:

 

Cook County Workforce Housing Study 2015

Cook County Workforce Housing Online Survey

 

In 2016, One Roof Community Housing began to work with the EDA to propose two workforce housing projects.  Using the Community Land Trust model, in Phase 1, the projects will provide owner-occupied homes in Grand Marais and apartments in Lutsen.
