Housing and Transportation

Preserving and Increasing Options

The Saint Paul Foundation funds housing in two ways. The first is our commitment to preserve and increase affordable, quality housing for low-income residents. Second, we support efforts to end homelessness through investments in prevention and in safe and respectful services that demonstrate understanding of distinct cultural and racial communities. We also fund increased access to equitable transportation options and benefits.
