The Importance of Equitable Access to Homeownership

Homeownership is the #1 way families build wealth in America. But households of color were systemically barred from ownership for generations via racial deed covenants and redlining. While these overt practices have largely been set aside, their destructive impacts remain.

Minnesota’s racial homeownership gap is one of the largest in the country today.
The Minnesota Homeownership Center is dedicated to changing this.


Since 1993, Minnesota Homeownership Center has helped more than 100,000 households to buy and keep their homes.

Working with a homeownership advisor gave me hope. Even though I was working hard to become a homeowner, I didn't believe it was possible for me. My advisor helped me to make my dream a reality.
