SAINT PAUL, Minn. - Yesterday, the Minnesota House voted to pass needed resources that will help address Minnesota’s unsheltered homelessness crisis on a 73-57 vote. HF444 known as the Pathway Home Act, significantly increases investments in critical state programs that support shelter providers across Minnesota in their direct response and service to Minnesotans who are currently unsheltered.
Rep. María Isa Pérez-Vega (DFL – Saint Paul) voted to support the legislation.
“Minnesotans are asking for equitable access to housing services and support systems in their communities. The Pathway Home Act provides ongoing, collective efforts needed to disrupt the violent cycles of homelessness many people are experiencing. I was proud to vote for this legislation because it will mean the state will be dedicated to ending homelessness by investing $150 million in emergency shelter facilities, services programs, transitional housing, outreach, and a pathway to stable housing for all Minnesotans.”
