Affordable Safe Accessible Housing

In October 2020, the Minnesota Olmstead Subcabinet created workgroups to research ways to better serve people with disabilities in five critical areas. Each group will make recommendations to the Subcabinet based on their research. You can read more about why the workgroups were formed on this page: Minnesota Olmstead Plan Workgroups

What does the Affordable Safe Accessible Housing Workgroup do?

This group of volunteers works with State Agency staff to:

  • Examine disparities in housing options for people with disabilities
  • Collaborate to increase affordable and accessible housing options
  • Develop strategies to address this issue

Get involved

This workgroup gathered resources to learn more about disparities in housing options for people with disabilities. You can find the items they are studying on this page: Research Materials

Are workgroup meetings open to the public?

Each group will hold public online meetings during the course of their work. At the meetings, the workgroup leaders will talk about their work and listen to comments from the public. Sign up for our email news list to be notified when a meeting is scheduled: Subscribe to Minnesota Olmstead News.
