Tenants behind on their rent payments have been protected from eviction by state and federal law — for now. But the state rent moratorium ends on May 14, with the federal eviction ban continuing until June 30. (Read about the legal details on the LawHelpMn.org website.)
When the hammer finally falls, and rent must once again be paid, refugees and immigrants will no doubt be at particular risk. You can bring yourself up to speed on the details, and provide guidance for patients and clients, by checking out RentHelpMN, which provides information and forms that will help tenants who owe back rent apply for state assistance.
Translations of necessary documents are not yet available, but the Resources page at RentHelpMN states that Hmong, Somali and Spanish versions will soon be provided.
