The CDA is excited to announce the launch of a new program for Carver County residents and landlords who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.  Funding for this program comes from Carver County.

Assistance for Residents

For households who have not previously received funding from the county or state, funding up to $10,000 per household or up to six months of housing and/or utility payments is available.  For households who have previously received funding, up to $5000 or three months of payments is available.  

Funding is available to help with rent, mortgage, homeowner’s association dues, and utilities including gas, electric and septic.  This assistance includes current month and past due bills back to December 1, 2020.  Residents must show that COVID-19 has impacted their housing stability.

Although there is a temporary moratorium on evictions and in some cases foreclosures, and utility companies are being asked not to shut off utilities, payments are still due when those restrictions are lifted.  Now is the time to get caught up.

There is no application deadline; however, funding is available on a first come, first serve basis until funds are expended.
