EXCERPT: “Waitlists around the metro area don’t open up very often. Dakota County is the only Twin Cities housing agency offering a chance this week at a voucher. About 500 people sit on the Minneapolis waitlist, though it’s been a decade since the city opened up its waitlist. Plymouth and St. Louis park opened their waiting lists last year, but don’t expect to open it again for years. They each have more than 450 people waiting. In 2015, the Metropolitan Council, the region’s largest Section 8 administrator, got 36,000 waitlist applications but only selected 2,000 people. Six hundred remain with no idea when the agency will offer them a voucher.” FULLSTORY: http://bit.ly/2NZ6uxj
