More than $28 million in economic stimulus money is en route to Minnesota to build affordable housing.
Hundreds of housing projects across the country are on hold because it is hard for developers to get financing. So the money coming to Minnesota is designed to put some of those projects back on track.
“During these tough economic times, millions of families have lost their homes and are struggling to find affordable housing,” Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., said. “These funds will help create jobs while providing affordable housing options for Minnesota families."
