No matter what part of Minnesota you’re from, having a safe, stable place to come home to is the foundation for our wellbeing. But Minnesota is facing a housing crisis that is making it harder for people -- many struggling to make ends meet -- find and afford a safe place of their own. It's time to take care of all of us; together we can ensure everyone, regardless of zip code, has a place to live our lives and care for our families. 

MHP, with support from our Homes for All MN coalition partners, invited candidates for the Minnesota House of Representatives and Minnesota Senate to complete our 2020 Candidate Questionnaire on Housing Issues. All candidates, regardless of party affiliation, were invited to complete the questionnaire. The purpose of the questionnaire is to educate and inform residents on how candidates are tackling housing issues that directly impact them. This questionnaire is not meant to serve as an endorsement of or for any candidate or political party.

Collected responses are posted below. Candidates were asked to limit their responses to each question to 300 words or fewer.
