The federal government provides resources for affordable homes in Minnesota, including low-income housing tax credits, funds for public housing, and other benefits such as the mortgage interest deduction for homeowners. Minnesota Housing Partnership advocates for federal policies that protect and expand affordable housing and reduce the growing gap between income and housing costs.
With an experienced team of technical assistance providers, connecting Native and rural communities across the country with invaluable federal resources, MHP provides unique knowledge of federal housing programs and how they advance local priorities.
MHP advocates at the federal agency level and with members of Congress by:
Submitting comments to federal agencies on policy and funding for housing and community development programs.
Providing information to Minnesota members of Congress and federal policy makers regarding the local impacts of federal policy and funding.
Supporting funding and financing that increases opportunities for affordable homes and community development.
