Affordable Housing Coalition

​The Affordable Housing Coalition (AHC) of Dakota County is an independent, public/private collaboration that facilitates county-wide planning of homeless services and resources. It serves Dakota County residents and people experiencing homelessness in four capacities:

  1. The local planning committee for Continuum of Care processes in Dakota County, including preparation of annual submissions and funding applications to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Find out more about the Housing and Urban Development Homeless Grant.
  2. The advisory group for Dakota County's Family Homeless Prevention and Assistance Program (FHPAP) grant from the State of Minnesota.
  3. The convener and leadership for Heading Home Dakota, a vision and plan to end homelessness in Dakota County in ten years.
  4. An advisory group for Dakota County on matters pertaining to homelessness and affordable housing.
