New Covid-19 Emergency Rental Assistance Program in Minnesota

Good news for Minnesotans looking for rental assistance! Applications for RentHelpMN are open and CLUES can assist you in the application process.

The State of Minnesota recognizes that many people have been directly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic recession and are in great need of assistance. That is why it has created a new rental assistance program called COVID-19 Emergency Rental Assistance, which operates under the name RentHelpMN. This program assists eligible tenants with back rent from April 2020, up to three months of upcoming rent at a time, and related utility payments. 

If you are eligible, you could receive up to 15 months total assistance, paid three months at a time for:

  • Rent payments
  • Utility payments (electric, water/sewer, garbage/recycling and other utilities as approved by RentHelpMN)

You can contact CLUES to know the requirements and help you with the application. CLUES RENTAL APPLICATION HELPLINE: 651-362-0162. You can also apply directly at renthelpmn.org. Or if you have questions, call 211. A RentHelpMN representative will be happy to guide you through the process.
