Governor Walz has issued Executive Order 20-14 to temporarily suspend evictions (except in cases of illegal activity or when a tenant is endangering the safety of other tenants) and request that financial institutions place a moratorium on pending and future foreclosures.
The Minneapolis Public Housing Authority says it will not file any unlawful detainers or move forward with any eviction hearings until further notice.
The Federal Housing Finance Agency has released information on suspension of evictions and foreclosures with loans held by Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae. Check details for eligibility: evictions and foreclosures.
If you are experiencing homelessness, St. Stephens offers support.
