Reporting on Agency Work
Minnesota Housing regularly conducts and publishes evaluations of our programs. We do so to report to the community, assess our work and make improvements for efficiency and effectiveness. We strive for continuous improvement.

Every year, Minnesota Housing issues an Annual Program Assessment. The report details the housing assistance provided during the previous year and summarizes characteristics of households assisted by each program. Read the 2022 Annual Program Assessment.

Special Topic Reports
Evaluation of the Rental Assistance Pilot for Homeless or Highly Mobile Families with School-Age Children
The Minnesota Legislature appropriated $2 million through the Housing Trust Fund for an initial rental assistance pilot project for families with school-age children who have changed schools or homes at least once in a school year. The goal of the pilot was to improve school attendance by stabilizing their housing. This evaluation assesses housing stability and school attendance, but not academic performance, which generally takes several years to measure an impact and is beyond the timeline of this evaluation. Read the February 2017 Report.
Homeownership Capacity Evaluation
Minnesota Housing launched the Enhanced Financial Capacity Homeownership Initiative to serve renters with low incomes and households of color. Read the 2018 Homeownership Capacity Evaluation
