Welcome to Housing Counts!

The Family Housing Fund and ULI Minnesota have teamed up to provide a comprehensive collection of tools and supports for a full range of housing choices in the Minneapolis/St. Paul region. Our work, developed in many ways with many talented partners, is most effective when it is located in one place that is easy to find and user-friendly. It was in that spirit that HousingCounts.org was created.

There are a wide variety of resources available on HousingCounts.org. The site is already home to interactive tools such as the Mixed Income Housing Calculator, policy best practices found in the Minnesota Housing Policy Toolbox, links to the latest regional data, and more! We are fortunate to have multiple organizations, collaborations, and champions that have led to this immense body of work that will:

  1. Increase the number of new housing units affordable to low- and moderate-income households,
  2. Preserve existing housing units affordable to low- and moderate-income households, and
  3. Improve access to housing units affordable to low- and moderate-income households.

We are continuously updating and improving Housingcounts.org, and we welcome any additional information or feedback that will ensure this online resource is relevant and up to date.

Thanks for being a partner in this important work!
