The Eviction Prevention Assistance Program is currently unavailable, but will be back soon. More details will be posted when it becomes available. In the meantime, help is available for qualified Dakota County renters who are unable to pay rent and utility costs through the following sources.
Due to COVID-19, services and programs are changing rapidly. Please contact agencies directly to determine the availability of their individual programs.
Although there has been a temporary hold on evictions, rent is still due, and landlords may evict tenants with past due rent after state and federal restrictions on eviction filings are lifted.
