Families First Housing Pilot
The Families First Housing Pilot provides Saint Paul families a $300 monthly rent supplement and ongoing supportive services for three years, in partnership with the Saint Paul Public Schools. Eligible families are those with incomes at or below 30% AMI, who pay 40% or more of their income for rent, are not receiving another housing subsidy, and have at least one Pre-K to 3rd-grade student enrolled in a participating school.
The program is funded by the Housing Trust Fund, developed by Mayor Melvin Carter to produce, preserve, and protect housing affordability for Saint Paul residents. Additional funding is provided by the Family Housing Fund, McKnight Foundation, Pohlad Foundation, and Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation.
Applications are available on a referral basis only. If you are interested in participating, contact your school for more information:
