In case you missed it, more emergency rental assistance is now available to tenants! The RentHelpMN Program launched a few weeks ago to help residents who have been financially impacted by COVID-19 and still owe rent or utility payments from the past year.
Those who qualify must be able to demonstrate how the COVID-19 pandemic has directly or indirectly impacted their ability to pay rent or utilities. This may include qualifying for unemployment benefits, experiencing a reduction in household income, and/or incurring significant costs or experiencing financial hardship due to the pandemic.
Household income may not exceed 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI) for the area in which the household is located as determined by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the applicant’s home county. Documentation will be required during the application process.
If you qualify, you could receive up to 15 months total assistance. For more information and to register for the program, click HERE.
