Housing and Homelessness

St. Louis County received grants from the Minnesota Housing Partnership and the Northland Foundation to undertake a planning process to develop a county-wide 10-year plan to end homelessness. A committee was formed to analyze the current state of the homeless problem in St. Louis County and to develop a comprehensive plan.

The end result is a county-wide plan which lays out clear goals and specific action plans that address root causes and provide permanent solutions. Heading Home St Louis County- A Ten-Year Plan to End Homelessness was adopted by the St Louis County Board of Commissioners. This plan is the guide for future resource allocation around the issue of homelessness in St. Louis County.

Family Homeless Prevention and Assistance Program funding available

The Minnesota Legislature has approved funds for the Family Homeless Prevention and Assistance Program through a Minnesota Housing Finance Agency biennium grant allocation. The current funds are available from July 1, 2013 - June 30, 2015. 

FHPAP initiatives in St. Louis County provide three critical services. These are flex funds, which can be used for deposits, moving expenses and other costs necessary to access and maintain permanent housing; stabilization services; and housing resource services. St. Louis County contracts with seven nonprofit agencies to provide these services across the county. In the first year of funding, 1993, stabilization services were able to prevent 79% of households served from becoming homeless. Click here for more information about FHPAP.
