Homeowners

If you can’t pay your mortgage because you’re struggling financially due to COVID-19, you can ask for mortgage payment relief (forbearance). Mortgage forbearance is when you have worked with your mortgage servicer to temporarily pause or reduce your monthly mortgage payments. It is not payment forgiveness. That means you must repay any reduced or paused payments in the future. In most cases, repayment can occur over time or when you refinance or sell your home.  Learn more here.

Businesses

Minneapolis restaurants and bars can now apply for pandemic relief through the SBA Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF).    Eligible businesses can receive funding equal to their pandemic-related revenue loss from this SBA program.  You do not need to repay the funds if the funds are used for eligible expenses.
