ALEXANDRIA โ€” Minnesota Housing announced on Aug. 4 that its homeowner assistance fund, HomeHelpMN, is lifting its August application deadline. The program will continue to accept requests for assistance as long as the program has funds available.

As of July 31, more than 4,300 homeowners have requested assistance. While there is now no application deadline, homeowners with past-due expenses are encouraged to apply as soon as possible due to limited funds.

Minnesota homeowners who have experienced a financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic and have past-due housing expenses may be eligible for financial assistance to bring their payments current.

Applications for assistance can be submitted online at or over the phone at 800-388-3226. The website and application are available in English, Spanish, Somali and Hmong. The call center supports these languages and more. Call center hours are from 8 a.m.-6 p.m., Monday through Saturday.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
