Minnesota Housing Partnership is joining forces with other housing organizations to make sure a bonding bill that includes resources for affordable housing is a part of the final negotiations of the 2011 State Legislative Session. A bonding bill that includes housing will not only create jobs, but also create places people can afford to call home.
Why now? In the final weeks of session, a bonding bill will potentially take shape as a part of the final budget negotiations. Lawmakers need to hear from you how bonding for housing is a critical financing tool and a means for job creation.
What can I do? Join us May 17th from 8:30 am until 12:00 pm for a mini "Day at the Capitol.” We will meet with lawmakers on key committees and advocate for a bonding bill that includes resources for housing.
Our message? Bonding for housing generates jobs, preserves important community assets, is a great investment of state resources, and creates homes.
