The GMNP supports programs to address the critical workforce housing shortage in Greater Minnesota. This includes increased funding for the DEED workforce housing grant program. The workforce housing tax credit should be the highest priority for tax cuts in the 2017 tax bill, and should be funded at least $40 million over 6 years. The GMNP supports workforce housing programs that are administered by DEED, have restrictions on unit cost rather than income or population, and which are focused on economic development and middle-income workers in Greater Minnesota.
