The federal government is the source of the majority of affordable housing resources for Minnesota and, as a result, Minnesotans have an important stake in effective federal housing policy. Minnesota Housing Partnership directly advocates for sound and well funded federal housing programs and encourages others to take action on federal housing policy.
