Minneapolis — A state agency is awarding more than $52 million in grants to help people find affordable housing.
Minnesota Housing Finance Commissioner Mary Tingerthal said the money will help more than 2,400 low-income households get into subsidized housing. She says the grants will help create more than 600 jobs when housing construction starts next year.
