Measuring progress. Inspiring action.

Overview

Goal: People at all income levels have housing opportunities throughout the state.

Housing is more than shelter. Our communities need stable neighborhoods where families can put down roots. Children need safe, stable homes and neighborhoods to flourish. Having affordable housing available throughout the metro area is important to a strong economy. It reduces worker shortages for employers, and transportation problems for workers. Concentrations of poverty in neighborhoods make them less stable, decreases property values and makes the area less desirable for businesses.
