Conifer Campus

Conifer Estates

Conifer Estates is a twenty unit supportive and transitional housing project in Bemidji.

The 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.

Phase II of the Conifer project has come to completion and full occupancy as of September 2021. There are four townhome buildings with 8 units serving 32 low-income and homeless households. A ribbon cutting ceremony was held September 3rd with an honored appearance from Senator Tina Smith. Financing for the project was similar to Estates with funding from MHFA, GMHF, and FHLB. The difference would be that this was a tax credits project which added another layer of special reporting and requirements. Conifer Villas LP is the owner which is staffed by HRDC with the HHDC as the governing Board. DW Jones is the property manager with case management services provided by Housing Matters, Red Lake Housing Authority, with some section 8 units.
