Help Keep the RSF Open

A LIFELINE FOR MINNEAPOLIS RENTERS

In the heart of Minneapolis, the Powderhorn Park Neighborhood Association (PPNA) has consistently stood as a pillar of support and advocacy for our vibrant community. Among our many impactful initiatives, the Renter Support Fund (RSF) is a beacon of hope for renters facing economic hardship. Since its launch in 2019, the RSF has been a crucial resource, providing financial relief to those struggling to keep a roof over their heads.


Since its inception, the RSF has funded 514 renters, benefiting 698 adults and 528 children. This support is not just financial; it offers a lifeline to those at risk of losing their homes, giving them time to breathe and plan their next steps...

However, the demand for this essential service has only grown. In 2023, the RSF saw a 33% increase in applications, but due to a 50% drop in available funding, only 2.3% of applicants were selected. This stark statistic underscores the urgent need for increased funding to meet the rising demand.
