Supporting the development of deeply affordable housing
Safe, stable, affordable housing is out of reach for hundreds of thousands of households in Minnesota and millions across the country. Dismantling barriers to the creation of affordable places for people to call home is central to our work. Through education, litigation, and negotiation, we unlock the potential of federal and state resources, and counteract the forces of NIMBY to ensure that we are creating housing opportunities for low income families throughout Minnesota and across nationwide.
We do this by:
- researching barriers to creating more deeply affordable homes
- fighting for deeply affordable housing through policy
- advocating to increase investment in the housing we need to most
- legal advocacy to push for fair housing policy
