The Minnesota Coalition for the Homeless hopes that the Legislature will approve $100 million in bonds this year to build affordable housing.
According to Willmar-based Rhonda Otteson, southwest regional coordinator for the coalition, the money is essential to secure stability in families, schools and communities. Gov. Mark Dayton has proposed disseminating $50 million in the bonding bill for housing.
Village Capital announced the winners of the $50,000 prize awarded to social entrepreneurs who don’t “self-define as social entrepreneurs”. The winners didn’t start out thinking of themselves as social enterprises.
