The Greater Minnesota Housing Fund and the Range Readiness Initiative Housing Team (RRI Housing Team)
hired Jay Demma to create an analytical tool, or model, that projects the need for housing in the Iron Range
region based on proposed and pending economic development.
Due to the rapidly evolving nature of economic development in the Iron Range, the housing model is
designed to be dynamic and can respond to change in the marketplace as new jobs and housing are
created. By quantifying local housing needs and opportunities, the results of the model will help the Range
Readiness Initiative to: 1) identify housing production capacity and need for added capacity; 2) inform
planning opportunities by housing type; 3) identify opportunities geographically; 4) help attract resources
for plan implementation; and 5) support further planning, and local and regional collaboration.
