The state’s role in financing regional housing priorities: Minnesota’s Consolidated RFP
2 Jul 2018
Like most public sector funders, Minnesota Housing, the state’s housing finance agency, strives to make sure that our limited resources encourage housing developers and other private sector partners to address both state and local priorities. One unique challenge for a state is creating a fair system and a timely process that works across vast geographies with diverse housing interests. The goals and needs of Greater Minnesota, for example, are quite different from those of the Minneapolis-Saint Paul metropolitan area. And even within the Twin Cities, needs differ across core cities and exurban communities.
