Throughout the year, Housing First Minnesota partners with the Minnesota REALTORS on events to promote homeownership and Minnesota’s housing industry.


Housing Day at the Capitol

SAVE THE DATE: March 14, 2018

Nearly 600 housing industry members attended the 2017 Housing Day at the Capitol on Thursday, Feb. 23. The monumental event marked the start of an exciting partnership for Housing First Minnesota and the Minnesota REALTORS. At the Capitol we worked together to promote the Minnesota Homeownership Initiative.

The Minnesota Homeownership Initiative is a package of common-sense legislative proposals that aim to protect the dream of homeownership for all Minnesotans by creating opportunities for first-time homebuyers and addressing the cost-drivers that are negatively impacting housing affordability. During this year’s Housing Day at the Capitol members of the housing industry were able to discuss the importance of the Minnesota Homeownership Initiative with 171 legislators.


Housing Day at the Minnesota State Fair


Members of Housing First Minnesota, the Minnesota REALTORS, the Saint Paul Area Association of REALTORS and the Minneapolis Area Association of REALTORS gathered at the Minnesota State Fair to promote homeownership and housing affordability on Monday, Aug. 28 for Housing Day at the Fair. Hundreds of housing industry members spread the word of the importance of homeownership and called attention to the new First-Time Homebuyer Savings Account recently passed by the Minnesota legislature.
