    HOUSING HEROES AT THE CAPITOL IN 2016!

    This year, Twin Cities Habitat was proud to again join forces with the Homes for All MN alliance to secure bonds for housing! Unfortunately, as session wrapped up late at night on May 23, no bonding bill was passed. We are disappointed because we know our communities cannot wait and that these funds for housing are needed today.

    However, we do have cause to celebrate - we successfully prevented a $5 million cut to the Challenge Fund by sharing with legislators how these funds are essential to Habitat affiliates across Minnesota!

    Thank you, Housing Heroes, for all your hard work to generate bipartisan support for housing. Housing Heroes contacted their legislators more than 3,200 times through legislative visits, a press conference rally, three Habitat Off the Hill events, as well as numerous emails, phone calls, postcards, and letters.
