Affordable Housing Crisis: Thousands of Families Still on Public Housing Wait-List
Despite its simplicity, finding affordable housing is a daunting task for many people, and what counts as affordable is often subjective. The reality is that apartments starting at $1,096 or more per month are out of reach for most people, and the lack of actual affordable housing is an ongoing crisis in Minneapolis. Thousands of families are waiting years to secure public housing, and the housing voucher waiting list has not been opened in years. It’s clear that affordable housing is still a major problem, and there’s no easy solution in sight.
