2018 Legislative Session

When families have stable housing, they can focus on work, school, and their health, strengthening our communities along the way. In 2018, Twin Cities Habitat, as part of Homes for All, will request $140 million in bonding investments to build and preserve safe, stable, and affordable housing across the state. Bonds for housing aren’t just an investment in homes, but an investment in jobs, education, economic development, and the entire community. Our Homes for All network also supports $10 million in appropriations to strengthen the housing continuum from homelessness to homeownership. The Governor’s Housing Task Force recently endorsed our 2018 Homes for All legislative agenda!

We are also advancing and taking leadership on a bi-partisan bill that will create a dedicated source of revenue for affordable homeownership statewide. The Workforce Homeownership Minnesota (WHOM) bill-HF1535/SF1497-builds upon a successful 2016 pilot program that launched affordable homeownership opportunities in four targeted rural and urban areas of Minnesota. Members of the statewide WHOM network have a success rate 7 times greater than the market at partnering with Minnesotans of color in acquiring homeownership opportunities--addressing our state’s homeownership gap for households of color.

Thank you for all you do to advance bipartisan support for affordable housing!

 

Sign the Petition

Tell lawmakers to prioritize housing and include it in bonding. Share your story about why housing matters to you. Help educate them with these facts: 

  • More than 600,000 MN families pay more than they can afford for housing. Affordable housing means families can focus on employment, education, and healthcare. 
  • Over 11,600 public school students experienced homelessness last school year. Access to stable housing improves school performance. 

We can do this together!
Sign this petition to your legislators, asking them to continue to make housing a priority.
