2023 session outcomes: Housing
Lawmakers dedicated an historic appropriation of over $1 billion (mostly one-time funding) to help address the lack of affordable housing, a barrier for attraction of workforce in communities all across the state. This includes a $39 million appropriation to help build workforce housing in Greater Minnesota, $20 million for the workforce homeownership program and $200 million in housing infrastructure bonds to help communities develop public infrastructure to support additional housing.
