If you are behind on your rent because of the pandemic, it is critically important to apply for assistance via RentHelpMN.org. Minnesota Housing has just released important information regarding the program deadline, shared below.
Application deadline: Friday, January 28 at 9:00 p.m.
The RentHelpMN emergency rental assistance program has announced a submission deadline for new applications and re-applications.
The deadline for renters to submit an application for the statewide RentHelpMN is Friday, January 28, 2022 at 9 p.m.
The deadline will not impact existing submitted applications, which will continue to be processed, subject to funding availability.
Please note that applications that have been started but not submitted by January 28 will be considered withdrawn. They will not be processed and an incomplete application will not provide protection from eviction.
We realize this may affect households that continue to struggle to cover their rent and other housing costs. The need for help is greater than the funds available.
If you are a renter
If you owe past-due rent, you may still apply for overdue rent, utilities, and up to one month of forward rent, but you must submit your application by the Friday, January 28, 9:00 p.m. deadline.
Visit RentHelpMN.org to begin or continue with an application.
If you need assistance, please log in to your portal or call the helpline at 211 or 1.800.543.7709. Please be aware that wait times for help through 211 will be longer than usual due to high demand.
If you have already submitted a RentHelpMN application, it will continue to be processed and you do not need to call 211 unless you have an immediate question. You can log in to your account to check on the application status.
