The January Minnesota Housing board meeting included discussion of several new initiatives, including the Minnesota Challenge competition to reduce costs of developing rental housing, as well as a program to help ex-offenders find housing. The board talked through tweaks to current scoring for the Low Income Housing Tax Credit program, with a more extensive overhaul planned for 2016. The board also approved the Fort Snelling Homeless Veterans project despite higher than expected costs. Finally Commissioner Tingerthal spoke about work with tribes and introduced the new Chief Financial Officer, Rob Tietz.
