In just a few weeks, advocates from across Minnesota will turn their attention to the state legislature. As a key leader in the Homes for All Coalition, MHP will be at the capitol this session making the case for robust investments and smart policies that advance housing.
Whether we engage in person or online, when we advocate for #Homes4AllMN, lawmakers need to know what's going on in the communities they represent. MHP’s Legislative District Housing Profiles are an essential resource, providing data on housing measure for all 134 legislative districts across the state.
While each district is unique in its challenges and opportunities, some troubling trends hold true. Utilizing data from the 2016 American Community Survey, we see a continued rise in housing costs, increasing numbers of families paying more than they can afford on housing costs and, in many districts, declining income for both renters and homeowners.
