$75M Awarded to Greater MN for Affordable, Workforce Housing

The state will kick in more than $75 million to support affordable and workforce housing development in greater Minnesota according to a publication in Finance and Commerce.

Policymakers and business leaders say a lack of available rentals is stunting economic growth.

In addition, the Minnesota Housing Finance Agency and several partner organizations will funnel about $17.2 million into affordable housing projects in the seven-county Twin Cities metro area. All together, the funding announced Thursday will go toward 51 projects that open up or preserve 1,420 affordable housing units across the state.
