Housing advocates are pushing Minnesota lawmakers to do more to help low-income renters.

Sherman Associates' renovation of the old Lincoln Park Middle School will provide 50 new housing units for Duluth next year.  

But researchers with the progressive think tank Minnesota 2020 say more needs to be done.

"Families and people across the state are in situations where they do not necessarily have a home they can even afford to live in," Leigh Rosenberg of the Minnesota Housing Partnership explained Thursday. 

The group is asking the Minnesota Senate to go along with the House's plan of providing $100 million to improve housing.
