Housing

Safe, Accessible, Affordable Housing

Housing in Rural America should be stable, accessible, safe, healthy, energy-efficient, and, above all, affordable. No one should have to spend more than 1/3 percent of their income on housing, so families have ample resources left to meet their other needs and save for retirement. The DFL Rural Caucus supports taking aggressive steps to increase the supply of housing, especially affordable housing, and address long-standing economic and racial inequities in our housing markets.
