You must have an application into a COVID Relief program to be protected from eviction until June 2022.   Tenants who apply through other rent/financial/emergency assistance programs that are not funded by specific federal laws are not protected under Minnesota’s phaseout rules.

File an application now to get help with rent & bills

Rent Help MN:  Apply for financial assistance with rent and bills online here.

Zero Balance Project: Landlords apply for financial assistance with rent on behalf of your tenants here.
