Rep. Hodan Hassan applauds passage of Housing Budget Conference Committee Report 

St. Paul, MN - Yesterday, the Minnesota House approved the conference committee report on House File 2335, the Housing Budget. The report makes $1 billion in investments, our state’s most significant commitment to addressing our housing crisis in state history. In doing so, the legislature will create housing stability for Minnesota families on the brink of homelessness through new state-based housing vouchers, spur the production of new homes across the state, and deliver pathways to homeownership for thousands of Minnesotans. 

Rep. Hodan Hassan (DFL – Minneapolis) serves on the Housing Finance and Policy committee. She voted to support the bill and issued the following statement.  

“Lack of affordable housing is one of the biggest crises Minnesota is facing. Our housing bill takes major strides toward addressing the issues and takes on a lens of equity. We’re creating new pathways to homeownership, building new housing Minnesotans can afford, preserving the housing infrastructure we already have, preventing thousands of families from falling into homelessness, and implementing programs and policy to both improve things now and in the long term. I was proud to work on this bill in committee, and am a proud supporter.”
