Where we live impacts every aspect of our lives. Where we call home affects the groceries we buy, where we send our kids to school, and how we thrive in our community. At every stage of life, where we live is the foundation for our health, education, safety, and economic wellbeing.
But in communities across the state, there isn’t enough affordable housing. This leaves few options for Minnesotans struggling to make ends meet.
Housing instability threatens individuals, families, and students. More than 1 in 4 households in Minnesota are housing cost-burdened, an increase of more than 70% since 2000. The number of Minnesotans experiencing homelessness has increased 10% in the past three years and the unsheltered homeless rate has increased by 62%.
Minnesota will thrive when everyone has a place to call home. Our legislative proposal strengthens Minnesota’s Housing Continuum, in every corner of the state.

Minnesota can address the FULL CONTINUUMof housing needs and ensure homes for all. Minnesota must address our state’s housing and supportive services needs. As Minnesotans, we believe that every resident deserves equitable access to safe, affordable, and accessible homes and shelter. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of housing stability, now more than ever. Even before the pandemic, half a million Minnesota households were spending more than 30% of their income on housing, leaving them unable to cover basic necessities like transportation and groceries. Minnesota can and must address the Full Continuum of housing needs. Join us in support of our Legislative Agenda and help ensure Homes for All.
