Rent Assistance Now Available
For renters and housing providers continuing to struggle during these challenging economic times, new funds are now available to help. RentHelpMN has opened for applications, making it possible for low- and moderate-income renters to get caught up on overdue rent and utilities dating back to March 13, 2020. It also makes provisions for those at risk of falling behind on rent payments due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Please take a moment to click on this link and complete my legislative survey before April 30. Your priorities are important to me. In a future update, I look forward to sharing the responses with you. [This survey was created prior to the February forecast announcement and question #4 doesn’t reflect the current $1.6 billion projected positive budget balance].
