CDA Celebrates 50 Years!

The CDA celebrated its 50th Anniversary on Tuesday, November 9th.

Fifty years ago, the CDA was created by a special act of the Minnesota Legislature, and since then, the agency has grown to be one of the largest housing authorities in the Midwest.

Early programs for the CDA included the federal Housing Choice Voucher and Weatherization Grant Program, but the agency’s scope grew in the 80s and 90s to include the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program and development of affordable senior and workforce townhome communities. Today, we have over 2,900 units of affordable housing located throughout Dakota County.
Thank you to all of our community partners, residents and staff for the past 50 years – we look forward to working with you and serving you for (at least) another 50 years!
