Bloomington HRA: Rental Home for Future Home Buyers

Bloomington Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) welcomes families of 3-6 members to apply for the Rental Homes for Future Home Buyers Program waiting list. Eligible families will rent one of the HRA’s 21- three-bedroom single-family homes for a maximum of five years. During that 5 years, the HRA works with families to set goals and prepares families to be ready to purchase and maintain their own home. The HRA saves a portion of the families rent each month, which is placed in escrow, and is used by the family to put toward a down payment on a house anywhere they want to live.

  • All household members must have eligible citizenship or immigration status.
  • All applicants are subject to background checks in criminal, credit and rental history.
  • No pets allowed.
