Building Standards Archive

Minnesota Housing establishes minimum design standards to assist in our commitment to meeting Minnesotans' needs for decent, safe and sustainable affordable housing. These standards also provide assistance to architects and contractors in understanding their role within Minnesota Housing's development process and associated requirements with their services. The Archived Building Standards documents must be followed for the year your development was selected and awarded Minnesota Housing Funding and Housing Tax Credits.
