Metropolitan Interfaith Council on Affordable Housing (MICAH) was founded in 1988 in response to an accelerating homeless crisis. Our strength comes from bringing together people of faith to act on their values to support affordable housing, undo racism and build regional equity, opportunity and housing choice.
The voices of our MICAH faith leaders across our region are daily making our vision of a metropolitan area where everyone, without exception, has a safe, decent and affordable place to call home. This vision is realized by bringing people together as we continue to advocate for a stronger regional housing policy at the Metropolitan Council and Cities.
We need at least 72,395 more units.
We are currently working with and in the Cities of Brooklyn Park, Carver, Dayton, Fridley, Hugo, Inver Grove Heights, Lakeville, Mahtomedi, Maple Grove, Minneapolis, Rogers, Roseville, St. Michael, and St. Paul to develop, rehab, and preserve over 1000 units of affordable housing for families, singles, youth, and seniors.
Make an investment: For every dollar invested in organizations like MICAH $138 in benefits was realized for Minnesota communities. (Study by National Council on Responsive Philanthropy)
