Conifer Estates

Conifer Estates is a twenty unit supportive and transitional housing project in the City of Bemidji. Financing for the project was provided by Minnesota Housing Finance Agency (MHFA), Greater Minnesota Housing Fund (GMHF), and Federal Home Loan Bank through First National Bank of Bemidji. The Beltrami County HRA is the owner of the facility and has executed a Facility Lease and Management Agreement with Headwaters Housing Development Corporation in which the organizations have agreed that the facility will be operated exclusively by HHDC under the terms of the agreements with MHFA. HHDC has contracted with DW Jones, Inc. to provide property management services and case management services are provided by Bi-CAP, Inc., Red Lake Housing and Leech Lake Housing.

We do this through the development of partnerships with local communities.
