MHP's publications feature original research and reports designed to educate the public about current housing issues in Minnesota and beyond.
Housing development programs that focus only on increasing the supply of housing without explicitly integrating the interests of the community can prove ineffective, since community members — the customers — won’t buy what that organization is attempting to sell.
“Community First,” a resource released this month by Minnesota Housing Partnership, aims to close this gap by helping organizations
understand the market they’re aiming to serve;
identify and address existing barriers to homeownership;
and establish effective programmatic approaches — tailored to their customers — to attract and support homebuyers to invest in properties and targeted neighborhoods.
