Minneapolis Renters Project

The Minneapolis Renters Project will develop a neighborhood- and renter-centric plan for neighborhood organizations in Minneapolis to work together with like-minded partners to improve the condition and stability of rental housing in Minneapolis. The project will also serve to increase renters’ participation in neighborhood organizations and civic participation in general. The partners involved in this project are the Lyndale Neighborhood Association, Powderhorn Park Neighborhood Association, and Corcoran Neighborhood Organization. The partners will start by engaging community members who are experiencing these issues to help develop the plan. They also will reach out to other neighborhoods, community leaders, policy makers, and funders. The purpose of this outreach will be to identify potential partners, develop strategies and ideas on how to engage renters and community members from traditionally underrepresented communities, and build the capacity of community members and neighborhood organizations. Planned outcomes are to improve livability and housing conditions for renters, drive policy change to improve how multi-family housing units are regulated, and build individual and neighborhood organization capacity.
