Minneapolis Advisory Committee on Housing

Are you a low income renter? Trying to become a homeowner? Someone who has experienced homelessness? A housing advocate? Apply to be part of the City of Minneapolis’ new Advisory Committee on Housing. The committee will advise city leaders on all aspects of housing policy at a time when housing issues are more critical than ever. With record low rental vacancy rates, rising rents and a shortage of homes available for first time homebuyers, the city is seeking input from residents affected by the current housing market to help inform and guide city housing policy decisions.

The Minneapolis Advisory Committee on Housing will advise the City Council, the Mayor and City departments on a wide range of issues related to housing, including but not limited to:

The committee is intended to reflect the racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, disability status, geographic and gender diversity of Minneapolis residents most affected by the current housing environment, which has low vacancy rates, a shortage of available affordable rentals, and a large disparity in homeownership rates between white households and households of color.

The Committee will be staffed by the Community Planning and Economic Development, Regulatory Services and Health Departments.

Deadline: October 5, 2018
