Minneapolis Advisory Committee on Housing

The Minneapolis Advisory Committee on Housing advises the Mayor, City Council, and City departments on a wide range of issues related to housing, including but not limited to city housing policy, homelessness and housing instability, fair housing development, rental licensing, accessibility, maintenance, health, and sustainability. The committee is intended to reflect the racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, 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.
