If Dakota County Emergency Assistance and CAP are unable to assist, you may apply to the Salvation Army rent assistance program. Apply by calling (952) 767-3901. It is okay to open a concurrent application with Salvation Army and the nonprofits listed below if you inform both programs you have done so.
If you live in Burnsville, Eagan, Rosemount, Apple Valley, Farmington, or Lakeville, 360 Communities may be able to help. After receiving a denial from both Dakota County Emergency Assistance and from CAP, please save your denial letters and have them ready to apply for financial assistance through 360 Communities. Apply by calling (952) 985-5300.
During the financial assistance process, we will ask you to verify:
- The bill you are late on
- Your income, budget, and expenses
- What caused you to fall behind
