Emergency Assistance is available for those who are struggling to pay for rent, housing costs and utilities. 

Apply for Emergency Assistance through MNbenefits.mn.gov. This is the fastest and easiest way to apply.

Apply for Emergency Assistance

Please submit only one application. Submitting multiple applications through different channels will delay the processing of your application.

Due to high volumes, the current processing of applications and wait times are longer than usual. County staff are working to decrease backlogs and may call after business hours and on weekends to conduct phone interviews. Beginning in March, residents can expect to receive phone calls after 4:30 p.m. - 7 p.m.
