Workforce housing has been a key policy priority for MHP, along with strong support for affordable housing through Homes for All. However, the MN House of Representatives' budget proposal for housing, released last week, funds workforce housing at the direct expense of programs that serve lower-income Minnesotans. The House proposal cuts key housing and homelessness programs, potentially pits Greater Minnesota against the Metro, and is likely to be inefficient and poorly targeted. The Senate proposal for housing will be released tomorrow (Wednesday). Neither chamber has released proposals for services dollars for homeless Minnesotans yet.
