Minneapolis city leaders unveil 'action plan' for growing homeless encampment


August 24, 2018

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey and American Indian leaders Thursday pledged to find stable housing for approximately 120 people living in a large and growing homeless encampment in south Minneapolis.

At a crowded news conference, Frey promised a “full-throated effort” by city and county social service agencies to provide housing and other services to the tent city at Hiawatha and Cedar avenues, near the Little Earth housing complex. Frey said he aims to eliminate the encampment by the end of September, as the city works on longer-term solutions for expanding the city’s supply of affordable housing and reducing its growing homeless population.
