If you or someone you know has low or moderate income and is looking for help with the cost of rent, the Renville County HRA/EDA may be able to help. Renville County offers two different programs; Housing Choice Vouchers (often time referred to as Section 8) allows housing clients to rent from a private landlord and a portion of the rent is paid directly to the landlord and Public Housing refers to living in a unit operated by the Housing Authority, they are located only in the communities of Franklin, Morton and Sacred Heart. Often times there is a waiting list for both programs.
The mission of HousingLink is “Connecting people to affordable rental homes, increasing choice and access for all.” To accomplish this we operate our award winning website where anyone can search for affordable rental housing vacancies and waiting list openings in Minneapolis, St. Paul, Twin Cities suburbs, and throughout all of Minnesota.
