Has COVID-19 made it hard to pay your rent?
IS ON THE WAY
If you have experienced hardship due to the pandemic and need assistance to pay your rent or utility bills, you may be eligible for COVID-19 Emergency Rental Assistance.
Eligible Minnesota renters can receive help with rent and utility bills dated on or after March 13, 2020. If you qualify, you could receive up to 15 months total assistance.
PLEASE NOTE: When RentHelpMN opens, it will initially assist renters who owe back rent. The second phase will open up the program to all who qualify. Watch this page for details.
