Our commitment to renters

Information about the City of Minneapolis's commitment to renters.

Renters make up more than half of the population in Minneapolis. People who rent homes in our City are important members of our community and come from all incomes, races, ages and stages of life. The City Council, Mayor and City staff are working together with community members and partners to ensure that all Minneapolis renters have:

  • safe and healthy housing
  • a clear understanding of their legal rights
  • protection from discrimination or intimidation
  • better access to rental housing
  • protection from displacement
