Hennepin County is offering emergency rent assistance. Households with unpaid rent and low incomes may qualify. The deadline to apply is noon Friday, March 19. Apply now.
While you canâ€™t be evicted for not paying rent during Gov. Walzâ€™s executive order, rent is still due. When the order is lifted, people owing unpaid rent could be at risk for eviction.
This is an initial short-term program for urgent needs. More help will be offered through a statewide COVID-19 Emergency Rent Assistance program opening later this month.
