Star Tribune: Housing advocates see 'grand alliance' to push for funding at Capitol

Today's Star Tribune highlighted the growing momentum to address Minnesota's housing challenges. Jessie Van Berkel notes that new voices are speaking up about the importance of creating more housing across the state.

"Employers ... have joined the push for more housing, along with cities, counties and chambers of commerce. Teachers whose students suffer without stable homes are talking about it. Health care professionals recognize the physical and mental toll of homelessness.

Housing advocates aim to harness the energy and encourage a new set of state leaders to spur construction and preserve affordable properties."
