Northwest Minnesota Workforce Housing Survey
Our region is full of economic opportunities, but housing is a barrier for many households who already work in or hope to begin working in Northwest Minnesota. In partnership with the NW MN Regional HRA, the Northwest Regional Development Commission is developing a report which will highlight potential solutions to our housing shortage. As we seek solutions, we must first recognize the needs of those impacted.
The first step in the process is a survey. Responses will help us understand what those in our workforce are looking for in housing and what obstacles we could remove to help our much needed workforce live and work in our communities.
Employers willing to host an on-site focus group should reach out to Emily Contreras at firstname.lastname@example.org or (218) 791-4668 if you’re interested in an employee engagement opportunity.
This project is sponsored by the Northwest Minnesota Foundation and information is being compiled by the Northwest Regional Development Commission and the Northwest Minnesota Regional Housing and Redevelopment Authority. Contacts for the project are Emily Contreras and Crystal Bailly, who are carrying out this work via contract with NRDC. If you have questions regarding the survey or how this information will be used, please email email@example.com.
