Rebuilding Together Minnesota
The Minneapolis/St. Paul Region faces a number of interconnected housing-related challenges, including racial disparities, aging housing stock, cost-burdened households, and an aging population.  For example, due to the shortage of affordable rental housing for older adults, it is increasingly critical that homes of low-income older adult homeowners be modified so they can age-in-place successfully.  In addition, the Minnesota has a 35% gap between homeownership among BIPOC households versus White households.  39% of housing stock in the Region was built before 1970 and aging housing stock can present serious health and safety hazards, particularly if maintenance and repairs have been deferred.  Our affiliate is committed to addressing these challenges, and the AmeriCorps Project Coordinator will play a critical role in delivering accessibility modifications and home repairs to those most in need in our community.
