Renter Counseling

Community Action Partnership of Hennepin County has HUD*-certified Housing Counselors available to help you navigate the rental process. Housing Counselors are trusted, unbiased professionals you can turn to for the knowledge and the guidance you need to make the right renting decisions for you. Housing Counselors understand Minnesota Fair Housing laws, understand Tenant and Landlord Rights & Responsibilities, will inform you of your legal protections, and will advocate for you.

HUD*-certified Housing Counselors can:

  • Help renters develop household budgets, determine what they can afford to pay for rent, establish if they are eligible for assistance, apply for rental assistance if eligible, and identify an affordable place to rent.
  • Support renters as they navigate the rental process, from paying deposits to signing or ending a lease.
  • Help renters build and keep a good relationship and communication with their landlord, as well as help resolve landlord-tenant disputes.
  • Educate renters about financial planning and good rental practices, such as obtaining rental insurance and maintaining a healthy home.
