Affordable and safe housing is a foundation for strong families and a healthy economy. The federal government has long recognized the importance of housing, and funds a number of programs that help provide an adequate supply of affordable and safe housing. With the recent housing market meltdown, there have been a number of new housing policy initiatives from the federal government.
Fortunately, the Minnesota Housing Partnership has created a new resource that tracks the major federal housing policy initiatives and programs. It’s well-organized, highlighting issues up for debate in Congress, as well as links to additional information. It should be helpful to any individual or organization that wants to understand more about a particular federal housing program or policy proposal.
