Council Plan

When the Council initially convened in 2013, it established Heading Home: Minnesota’s Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness, the first plan to focus on the vision of achieving housing stability for all Minnesotans. The initial two year plan (covering 2014-2015) was revised and reissued for another two year period (2016-2017). These plans described specific commitments of Council agencies to actions that would drive progress on these issues. In May 2021, the Council approved a direction for the next plan to focus on housing, racial, and health justice. More details on process for developing this next plan will be shared in the coming months.
