Housing in Duluth is getting a boost.

The Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) announced the launch of their "Build Up Duluth" program on Tuesday. The purpose is to create $14 million of new construction in Duluth's Central and East Hillside neighborhoods.

The project aims to increase mid-range housing options in Duluth. Rick Ball, executive director of the HRA, said on Tuesday that as the economy grows, development needs to grow with it.

"We have a wonderful problem," Ball said. "We're in an economic growth scenario and seeing new job growth, which is terrific. We want to make sure we're having an adequate response with the housing supply to meet that need."

Build Up Duluth also launched a website with more information on the program.
