MINNESOTA RENTAL CONFLICT RESOLUTION
Following the end of the Minnesota Eviction Moratorium on June 1, 2022, the Conflict Resolution Center is providing assistance to renters who are at risk of losing their housing security, especially those who have applied for Minnesota’s Rental Assistance Program but whose application is still pending. Mediation between renters and property owners/managers has been proven to help provide alternatives to eviction and housing insecurity. If you or someone you know is at risk of losing their housing, reach out to Zina Alston Fizer at CRC at firstname.lastname@example.org.
