The Met Council’s Housing Policy Plan will support the Council’s Thrive MSP 2040 , the Council’s regional development guide. Designed to assist local communities and advance regional housing goals, the Plan will establish the Council’s broad housing policy direction for the coming decades. Housing investment and disinvestment have a critical impact on the vitality of the region, its cities, its neighborhoods, and its households and families. The Plan will focus on promoting housing options that give people in all life stages and of all economic means viable choices for safe, stable and affordable homes.
