Community Development

Affordable Housing Coalition

The Affordable Housing Coalition is a group of housing advocates, service providers, non-profit organizations, and government agencies. The Coalition works to address the housing needs for the "hardest to house" and provide affordable workforce housing. Member organizations bring a variety of experience in single-family housing, multi-family housing, emergency shelter, transitional housing and permanent supportive housing. Meetings generally take place the third Tuesday of the month at the Housing Resource Connection at 10 am. A list of member organizations can be found here. For more information about meetings please contact City Staff at or (218) 730-5480.
