Rental Assistance

Father and child

We administer rental subsidies for people who are enrolled in our supportive housing and transitional housing services in the Twin Cities, Brainerd and St. Cloud areas. In Sherburne, Benton and Stearns counties, we also offer one-time, short-term financial assistance to households facing eviction, foreclosure, flood, fire or a utility shut-off.

Rental subsidies can help with rent, deposit, utility costs or mortgage assistance to help prevent foreclosure or eviction. We provide case management services o eligible households to assist with housing stability, resources and referral to other helpful community services.

Eligibility

To be eligible, recipients or households must be at or below 200% of Federal Poverty Guidelines and be experiencing a housing crisis. Counties we serve include:

Twin Cities: Anoka, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, Carver and Washington
Brainerd: Aikin, Cass, Crow Wing, Morrison, Todd and Wadena
St. Cloud: Benton, Sherburne, Stearns and Wright
