Changing the Face of Housing in Minnesota seeks to increase the participation of communities of color at all levels of housing production, planning, management, policy, and decision making in Minnesota.

After many successful years of job and public policy training, the Changing the Face of Housing initiative has formally ended, and we will soon take down this website.  While this collaborative project is complete, its founding organizations carry on its mission of increasing diversity and inclusiveness in the Twin Cities affordable housing industry.  Please visit us at our respective websites to learn how each organization is continuing to change the face of housing.
