Preventing and Ending Homelessness
Preventing and ending homelessness is a far-reaching effort that must include all sectors to succeed. For this reason, much of the state’s work is conducted through the multi-agency Minnesota Interagency Council on Homelessness, of which Minnesota Housing is a member.
Minnesota Housing focuses on the creation and preservation of permanent supportive housing and the systems needed to help people facing homelessness access housing they can afford.
