Missouri Housing Development Commission (MHDC) is the Housing Finance Agency for the state of Missouri. MHDC is responsible for administering numerous federal and state affordable housing-related programs targeted to Missourians with extremely-low to moderate incomes.
The state of Missouri receives millions of federal and state dollars each year to provide housing-related assistance and facilitate the development of affordable housing.

The organization offers a rewarding career in public service by providing the opportunity for dynamic, impactful and fulfilling work serving individuals and families across the entire state.
