Families and individuals on the path to stable, affordable housing are served through financial assistance, safe housing and case management.
Housing Provides Stability in People’s Lives
Housing is a first priority in our lives. We all need stable housing to develop roots in the community, maintain job stability and help our children nurture long-term success in school. We provide housing services and support to help youth, adults, people with disabilities, families, older adults and veterans live healthier and more satisfying lives. We also work with housing developers and property owners to provide safe and stable housing for people we serve.
If you need housing assistance, the first step is to reach out to your county’s Coordinated Entry System contact. Coordinated Entry is a statewide screening process to assess your needs and connect you to a provider that can help. We serve people referred through Coordinated Entry in the Twin Cities, St. Cloud and Brainerd communities. If you need support in one of these areas, please see this list of Coordinated Entry System contacts.
IMPORTANT: COVID-19 Rent and Mortgage Assistance Available
If you need help with your rent or mortgage payment, new funding is available through the CARES Act to help you maintain housing stability during the COVID-19 crisis. If you’ve been impacted by unemployment or illness and are eligible, funding can help cover your rent, mortgage payments, utilities and other housing-related expenses incurred after March 1, 2020 that are past due. Don’t delay! Funds will go quickly. Learn more and fill out a pre-application to determine your eligibility.
