Mayor Frey will use $28 million in pandemic relief money for housing in Minneapolis



Mayor Jacob Frey told reporters at the Elliot Twins public housing complex that "people are struggling to make ends meet."

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey wants to use $28 million of American Rescue Plan money for affordable housing, including rental assistance to low-income tenants, pathways out of homelessness and new homeownership opportunities, particularly for Black and Indigenous people and people of color.

At a news conference at the Elliot Twins public housing complex Thursday, Frey said his plan will help keep people in their homes as the city anticipates a wave of evictions after a statewide ban is lifted. The federal government is expected to end its eviction moratorium on June 30.

"There is a looming eviction moratorium that will be lifted," Frey said. "People are struggling to make ends meet, and we want to make sure that those who are struggling most are provided the assistance first."
