In her introductory remarks at Minnesota Housing's January Board Meeting Commissioner Tingerthal informed the board that the Agency won big in this year’s Better Government Award. Governor Dayton recognized Minnesota Housing for programs to increase homeownership among households of color and for the work of the Interagency Council on Homelessness. Regarding the Council, Tingerthal said that earlier this day the new two-year action plan to prevent and end homelessness was adopted. This plan committed the agency to fund 5,000 units of housing, a stretch goal added Tingerthal, and one that will require the support of many partners.
