Fair and Affordable Housing
One of the most pressing issues facing our community it the rising cost of housing - whether you’re a renter or looking to buy your first home. We’ve got to move aggressively to stabilize and reduce the costs of housing to give every resident of Hennepin County access to stable housing and dignity in living.
