Affordable Housing Summit - April 7
A roof overhead, a place that is safe and comfortable, a place to call home. Housing is a basic need, yet a shortage of housing - for people at all stages of their lives - is all too common in American's cities, towns and rural communities. Minneapolis is no exception. An important focus for the City of Minneapolis is increasing the availability of affordable housing.
Join Mayor R.T. Rybak and affordable housing advocates for a community update and dialogue regarding the City's affordable housing efforts.
