The City has worked with the Tenant Resource Center (TRC) to engage a broad team of Hennepin County staff and Community Prevention Providers (CPPs) to facilitate the Emergency Housing Assistance (EHA) program. The housing gap funds will help at least 1500 Minneapolis households.
The amount of assistance provided will depend on the individual needs of the household. In most cases, the maximum amount of assistance will not exceed $1,500 per household, but providers will have the flexibility to provide up to $2,000 under extraordinary circumstances. Eligible expenses include rent payments, utility payments and/or other housing stability related costs.
Payments will be made directly to the rental property owner, utility company, or the housing cost payee.
Details and applications for the Minneapolis Gap Funds for Housing guidelines and process are available at http://minneapolismn.gov/coronavirus/gap-funding and have also been posted in Somali, Oromo, Spanish, and Hmong. Those without online access can call the Tenant Resource Center at 612-302-3129 and leave a voice mail message.
