In 2022, our main funding source became unsustainable and we’ve been piecing together resources since then…this is one way you can help!

This year, we have seen record numbers of applications to the Renter Support Fund.

We are currently only able to fund 3% of applicants, despite the great need for funds and the rising number of evictions. We have the capacity to help more renters; we just need more funding. 

Our community can make a material difference in the lives of our neighbors. You can help renters in your community today by voting for the Renter Support Fund.

VOTE TODAY!  If you’re a member or shopper at Seward Community Co-op just a few moments of your time can make a material impact for renters in Minneapolis.
