“[The Renter Support Fund] helped me in a time where all I was hearing was ‘no.’ It gave me some time. Thank you!”

The Renter Support Fund seeks to improve housing stability by offering direct rental assistance to cost-burdened Minneapolis renters. Since its inception in 2019, the Renter Support Fund has provided unrestricted cash grants to hundreds of Minneapolis renter households.  In 2022, demand for Renter Support Fund stipends grew by 150% monthly over 2021, while our available funding enabled us to support only 4.5% of applicants.
