Minnesota Expungement Policy Expansion

Location
Minneapolis, Minnesota
Organization(s)
Council on Crime and Justice

The Council on Crime and Justice will conduct an HIA to inform the Minnesota State Legislature’s decision on a proposal to expand current policies to allow criminal records for certain first-time offenders in juvenile delinquency, theft, and nonviolent drug cases to be sealed. Expanding the state’s policies regarding expunging youth-offender records could remove barriers to employment and housing for people with a criminal history. Income and stable housing are related to overall health status, rates of chronic illness, and stress and mental health. (This project is supported by funding from the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota Foundation)
