Minnesota Gov. outlines $100M proposal to reverse racial disparities

April 13, 2016


Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton outlines $100M proposal to reverse persistent racial disparities in housing, education and labor.


His proposals, if enacted, would provide infusions of capital into business-development programs, youth employment initiatives and down-payment assistance for lower-income first-time home buyers. He also wants more funding for the Department of Human Rights, a state agency that investigates complaints of discrimination in workplaces.


Dayton’s agenda reflects a commitment to ensuring Minnesota’s future economic growth. Business groups and others warn that if racial disparities in education aren’t addressed now, they will stymie the state’s ability to grow and thrive.
