$100 Million Housing Assistance and a “Tweak” of the Eviction Moratorium Dial

Governor Walz announced yesterday the creation of a $100 million housing assistance program. The program will be funded with federal dollars through the Coronavirus Relief Fund, which was authorized by the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. Funds will likely be ready to be disbursed by mid- to late-August.

In addition, Governor Walz “tweaked” the Eviction and Lease Termination Moratorium yesterday by issuing Executive Order 20-79 which replaces the previous Executive Orders. The Order goes into effect on August 4th and requires a 7-day notice prior to filing an action permitted under the Executive Order.
