Welcome to the Official Podcast by the League of Minnesota Cities!

Jan 3, 2020

Housing is a critical infrastructure issue in cities across Minnesota, and it intersects with many other basic needs and services. One of the partners working to solve this complex problem is Minnesota Housing Assistant Commissioner for Policy and Community Development Ryan Baumtrog. His agency’s goal is for everyone in Minnesota to have a safe, affordable home in the community of their choice, and he discusses the programs and tools his agency offers to cities to help achieve that goal. (Read about Minnesota Housing 2019 Funding Selections.) Also joining the conversation is League of Minnesota Cities Intergovernmental Relations Representative Daniel Lightfoot. He shares what the League will be advocating for during the 2020 legislative session regarding  housing needs for cities.
