Experts say the U-S Supreme Court allowing evictions to immediately resume across the country doesn’t speed up Minnesota’s deadlines, because the state already has a moratorium phase-out the legislature approved in June. Eric Hauge (HOW-gee) with the group Homeline says in about a month-and-a-half, the vast majority of Minnesota tenants’ COVID eviction protections go away. After October 12th in Minnesota, the only tenants who *cannot* be evicted, are those whose applications for emergency rent assistance are still pending:
“The reason for that is, the money should get paid out, and so you shouldn’t be evicted while you’re simply waiting there.”
Minnesotans who can’t pay their rent because of COVID should apply for assistance immediately at rent-help-mn-dot-org (renthelpmn.org).
