Political leaders at the city and federal levels celebrated the groundbreaking of a project Thursday that will provide housing for several families in Minneapolis.

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey’s office says there will be more than 80 homes available across the city as part of the Family Housing Expansion Project. There will be more than two dozen two-bedroom units and 58 three-bedroom units at more than a dozen sites across the city, according to Minneapolis officials.

The groundbreaking ceremony started shortly after 11:30 a.m.

Frey was joined by Minnesota U.S. Senator Tina Smith, as well as members of the Minneapolis Public Housing Authority.
