New State Assistance

Low- and moderate-income Minnesotans struggling to pay their rent during the pandemic can now apply for a new state assistance program that uses $375 million in federal stimulus money. Minnesota Housing Commissioner Jennifer Ho says the program can provide rent assistance for up to 15 months in total. Ho says the best thing that a renter can do is talk to their property manager and go over the checklist of everything that’s required in the application. For information, visit RentHelpMN.org.
