Minnesota Lacks Affordable Rental Housing

by

UNDATED (MNN) -  Minnesota ranks last among 12 Midwestern states in availability of affordable rental housing.  That's according to a new report from the National Low-Income Housing Coalition.  Leigh Rosenberg with the Minnesota Housing Partnership says the report shows there's a need for public rent subsidies for low-income state residents.  The report finds that rents in Minnesota have increased by an average of 32 percent over the past decade and as much as 56 percent in some rural counties.  Aitkin, Big Stone, Mille Lacs and Winona Counties top the list of the least affordable in the state.
