2019 Legislative Session Priorities

The 2019 legislative session began on Tuesday, January 8, and Twin Cities Habitat is actively involved in advancing affordable housing policies at the state level.

Habitat continues to prioritize funding for affordable homeownership opportunities, and we are a leader on the Workforce Homeownership Minnesota (WHOM) bill. We are seeking $20 million over two years to increase funding for workforce homeownership. WHOM aligns with Habitat’s goal to partner with low-income households in the workforce, and it helps Minnesota close the racial gap in homeownership for households of color.

Along with our partner organizations in the Homes for All coalition, Habitat is committed to advocating for policies that address the full continuum of housing needs. The Homes for All legislative agenda reflects this broad range of policies that promote housing stability for all Minnesotans.

We will need your help elevating these issues at the Capitol. Sign up for action alerts and updates from the Habitat Advocacy Team for opportunities to get involved and ensure the 2019 legislative session is a success!
