The Hennepin County helpline is now open 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Call the helpline at 612-348-3000 for support with food, clothes, finance, health, and supplies. Help is available in many languages.
Even though renters cannot be evicted under new orders from the State of Minnesota and Centers for Disease Control, your rent is still due and you will be accountable for unpaid rent and bills when these orders are lifted.
Don’t let unpaid housing costs add up. If you have been financially harmed by COVID-19, help is available to cover rent, mortgage payments and utilities.
Both Hennepin County and the State of Minnesota have emergency housing assistance programs. However, if you live in Hennepin County, more funding may be available to you if you start your application at www.hennepin.us/housing-help. The web page will direct you to the best program for your situation.
You can apply and receive assistance multiple times. Don’t wait. Apply now to get help as soon as possible.
