Housing and Homelessness

Minnesota’s homelessness and housing affordability issues receive consistent, perennial attention as both government officials and nonprofits continue to study these topics. Every three years, Wilder Research conducts a statewide, one-day study of people who are experiencing homelessness or living in temporary housing programs in Minnesota. The study is comprised of a count and face-to-face interviews. Results of the most recent survey, summarized in Single Night Count of People Experiencing Homelessness: 2018 Minnesota Homeless Study Fact Sheet, show a 10 percent increase in the number of Minnesotans experiencing homelessness since the 2015 survey—10,233 individuals. Further details and trends are included in Characteristics and Trends Among Minnesota's Homeless Population: Initial Findings from Face-to-face Interviews Conducted in 2018. Both reports are included in this month’s list of new Library acquisitions.

Minnesota’s executive branch established the Minnesota Interagency Council on Homelessness to coordinate the services and activities related to homelessness of eleven state agencies, the Met Council, and the Governor’s Office. The Council also undertakes a point-in-time count of persons experiencing homelessness in Minnesota. The Council’s statistics show an 8% decrease in homelessness since 2014—especially for families and veterans—but they are careful to point out in their report that, “While counting methods and data sources continue to improve, these counts always represent a minimum estimate of the number of Minnesotans experiencing homelessness.” The Council also makes recommendations for combating homelessness in its biennial report, Heading Home: Minnesota's 2018-2020 Action Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness.

Homelessness can be the result of many factors, including the lack of affordable housing. In 2019, the Legislature established the Legislative Commission on Housing Affordability to study the issue. The Senate established a select committee, which is also currently studying housing affordability: Senate Select Committee on Home Ownership Affordability and Availability
