Minnesota Housing Partnership (MHP) is a non-profit housing organization that the Center has worked with on a number of housing issues that provides resources to help community organizations, businesses, municipalities, and elected officials in Minnesota understand the housing market (both ownership and rental)... with the goal of advocating for the creation and preservation of affordable housing. MHP’s resources include research, advocacy, technical assistance, and financial tools and support.
MHP has produced their "Slideshow: 2010 Housing Facts for Advocates" that is chock full of slides and talking points that cover current statistics ranging from housing cost burden and unemployment to foreclosures and at-risk homeowners. Some of the data produced from the Minnesota Home Ownership Center's work is included in the slideshow.
There is a ton of great information on these slides that can be used to address a number of housing needs.
