• Hennepin County created the Affordable Housing Incentive Fund to support affordable housing development with a special 1:2 matching grant of $2 million from the Family Housing Fund. This was very significant as it was the first time that a County government appropriated significant resources for the capital funding of affordable housing and spurred other counties to act as well.        • The Fund commissioned “Home Sweet Home: An Affordable Housing Art Exhibit” in order to celebrate its 20th Anniversary and to increase public awareness of the need for affordable housing in the Twin Cities.
