Habitat Minnesota Raises Awareness

Check out all the ways you can help us advocate for Habitat and affordable housing! We monitor all state and federal legislation that may affect Habitat for Humanity’s mission. We engage affiliates in large efforts to combat any issues as needed as well as partner with Habitat for Humanity International.

Minnesota Housing reports here the following that explains why we need to advocate for more affordable homeownership:

  • The number of cost burdened households increased from 350,000 in 2000 to over 550,000 in 2016, which is
    58% increase.  For context, the overall number of households in Minnesota increased by 35% during that period.
  • The need for more affordable housing is very large, especially for lower‐income households.
  • 57% of all of all lower‐income households are cost burdened, which is 450,000 households.
