Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid has been running a housing representation project in Hennepin County.  The latest report on their pilot found, among other things, that represented tenants were twice as likely to stay in their homes, received twice as long to move if necessary, and were four times less likely to use a homeless shelter.  

At the same time, the City of Minneapolis announced it has created a $500,000 fund for eviction defense.
