Local Solutions to Poverty Candidate Forum: Landlord Incentive Program

Dec 14, 2016

With Duluth's housing vacancy rate hovering around 3%, it's hard enough to find a place to live.  It would be bad enough if you were trying to find housing when no one wanted to hire you ... but where would you go and what would you do if no one wanted to rent to you, either?

Low-income Duluthians took center stage at a unique candidate forum in October.  They shared their experiences and struggles with candidates for state and county offices and then asked the candidates - pointedly - for specific commitments and actions on several critical policy measures.

We'll be bringing you their stories and the reactions of the candidates to their requests in the weeks to come.
