COVID-19 and Minnesota Housing

In light of COVID-19 developments and advice from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Governor Walz, Minnesota Housing is making efforts to practice social distancing and minimize unnecessary social contact to the extent possible. We value your health and safety and that of our agency employees. For this reason we are shifting many of our upcoming meetings and events by canceling, postponing, or converting to phone calls, depending on the event.

Our mission to provide housing that is affordable to people throughout Minnesota is stronger than ever. To continue advancing that mission, we remain focused on our work with you and all of our partners. This situation is new for all of us and we want you to know that we are monitoring and evaluating our systems to be flexible and responsive. Communication is key and we promise to make every effort to send clear and timely updates.

We created this webpage to provide a centralized location for all Minnesota Housing updates and information related to COVID-19. Please see below for updates from various parts of our agency. We will continue adding to this webpage on a regular basis so check back often. Thank you to everyone who has been reaching out with questions and working diligently to continue serving the people of Minnesota.
