Housing Assistance

Short Term

Short Term Housing Assistance provides financial assistance to individuals and families to secure permanent affordable housing. The program can provide funding to avoid eviction or cover relocation, or deposit expenses. Identified housing rent must be less than 50% of total household income.  Households will be assessed and prioritized using the Coordinated Entry System (see Support Services Home Page).

Following the financial assistance, the household must participate in three-six months of case management. Households must reside in Goodhue, Olmsted, Rice or Wabasha Counties.

Funding for this program provided by:

  • US Deptartment of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
  • MN Housing Finance Agency (MHFA)
