Eviction Moratorium Changes October 12

On October 12, Minnesota renters will lose some key eviction protections under the state’s eviction moratorium off-ramp. Here is a list of resources we can suggest for tenants.


Rental Assistance

  • The state of MN has a rental assistance program called RentHelpMN. Learn more and apply at https://www.renthelpmn.org/ or call 2-1-1. Note: Apply for this program before October 12 to help protect yourself from eviction for nonpayment of rent.

  • If you are denied for RentHelpMN and you live in Hennepin County, you can apply for Align Mpls's Emergency Rental Assistance Program (here) or Zacah Rental Assistance. For both programs, only apply if you have been denied assistance through RentHelpMN.

  • If you live in Minneapolis and are a cost-burdened renter, you may be eligible for the Renter Support Fund, administered by PPNA in collaboration with the Minneapolis Renters Coalition. Note that this program is different from RentHelpMN, which is administered by the State of Minnesota.

Utilities Assistance

  • The state of Minnesota has an energy and water assistance program that can help you pay for utilities. Hennepin County residents can download an application here. It's one application for both programs! If you don’t live in Hennepin County, apply through your county’s Energy Assistance Program provider, listed by county here.

Mutual Aid

Legal Assistance

  • If you have any questions about your legal rights as a tenant, you can call the HOME Line Free Tenant Hotline: 612-728-5767
