  About MHDC > History & Mission


Missouri Housing Development Commission
is dedicated to strengthening communities
and the lives of Missourians
through the financing, development
and preservation of affordable housing.

Kip Stetzler
Executive Director



The Missouri Housing Development Commission (MHDC) was created in 1969 by the General Assembly and is an instrumentality of the state of Missouri, which constitutes a body corporate and politic. MHDC administers, and provides financing for, the construction of affordable housing. The Commission also provides funding for home loans to qualified, first-time buyers through a network of certified, private mortgage lenders. Mortgage financing is facilitated through the sale of mortgage-backed securities and through the sale of tax-exempt bonds that the Commission is authorized to issue.


The Commission administers the federal and Missouri Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) programs, the Affordable Housing Assistance Program Tax Credit (AHAP), federal HOME funds, and the direct funding of several housing assistance programs. Further, the Commission administers homeless assistance funds for permanent housing in an effort to end homelessness in Missouri. The Commission also provides advisory, consultative, training and educational services to non-profit housing organizations.

The Commission includes the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, State Treasurer, Attorney General and six persons appointed by the Governor with the advice and consent of the Senate.
