Housing Counts Data 2002-2022

Nov 2023

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.

Looking to compare over the years? Every publication from 2002-2021 has been compiled in one document. You can also view HousingLink’s visualization of the data over time.
