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. More than half of Minnesotans experiencing homelessness are children and youth, with nearly 9,500 public school students identified as homeless or highly mobile during the 2015-16 school year.
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.
