Housing Help Pop Up offers eviction relief

The eviction moratorium has reached its final phase. Only those who have “pending” MN Rent Help applications are protected until June of 2022. For those facing this moratorium, help is available. 

The Minneapolis NAACP Housing Committee has teamed up with State Representatives Esther Agbaje and Fue Lee, State Senator Bobby Joe Champion, Housing Minnesota, North Point Health and Wellness Center, ACER, Hennepin County Adult Representation Services and the Twin Cities Urban League to assist impacted community members, tenants and renters facing eviction or lease terminations. 

A free Housing Help Pop Up will be held on Friday, November 5 from 3-7 pm at the Twin Cities Urban League, 2100 Plymouth Avenue North in Minneapolis.

The purpose of this pop up is to educate community members on the eviction moratorium phase-out; assist those who have been impacted by the eviction moratorium to access rent help; assist with filling out applications for MN Rent Help through the Minnesota Housing website; check the status of applications; and provide access to legal representation, legal support and legal advice. 

Participants should bring the following: landlords’ name, address, and contact information; a copy of the lease agreement; a past-due rent statement; a list of members in your household; documents listing income, including pay stubs; and state-issued identification.

Light refreshments will be served.
