Community Housing Study
In January 2013, the City of St. Cloud, in partnership with several community stakeholders, commissioned a housing assessment to enhance the understanding of housing and homeless issues throughout the community. The goals of the Housing Study are to enhance the understanding of housing and homeless issues throughout the community of St. Cloud, including needs, gaps and prospective priorities.
The City of St. Cloud is in the early stages of preparing an update to the Community Housing Study for 2019. The assessment is intended to quanify the supply and demand for the full range of the housing spectrum in St. Cloud.
