MHP Applauds Governor Walz’s Announcement of Bonds for Housing

Today Governor Walz announced a $2.7 billion infrastructure to support projects across the state. MHP was pleased that the Governor’s announcement included a request for $250 million in housing infrastructure bonds and $60 million in general obligation bonds for public housing.

“The Governor’s bonding investment proposal for over $300M in housing reflects the recognition that Minnesota thrives when Minnesota families have stable housing,” says Anne Mavity, MHP Executive Director. “We appreciate his leadership in continuing to prioritize housing. We also recognize that if we want every corner of Minnesota to thrive, we need solutions that scale to the demand for housing. When we invest in housing, we invest in Minnesota families and communities and our State’s businesses.”

MHP appreciates the Governor’s leadership in continuing to prioritize housing. The proposal is a bold start, and much more is needed.
