Housing Counts Data 2002-2019
Each year since 2002, Family Housing Fund and HousingLink jointly publish data to provide housing
leaders and stakeholders with a consistent means of tracking annual affordable housing production,
preservation, and loss. The data set provide an annual accounting of affordable housing projects in
Minneapolis, Saint Paul, and suburban communities, offering a systemic and consistent way of measuring
progress to municipal and regional affordable housing goals.
Importantly, when tracking new production and/or preservation of affordable housing, there are several points in time when a unit could be “counted.” HousingLink and Family Housing Fund have chosen to count units in the year their funding first closes. Only developments with public and/or private capital funding that includes affordability obligations are listed.
