Rental Assistance for Refugees
The state of Minnesota is planning to welcome hundreds of refugees from Afghanistan in the fall of 2021. This work falls exactly in line with ZACAH's mission - the moment any refugee arrives, they are a Minnesotan who deserves and is entitled to protection from eviction or homelessness. The Qur'an is clear about the rights of refugees: The provision of assistance is obligatory to people who flee from injustice, intolerance, physical persecution, disease, or financial insecurity.
If you are from a community-based organization and/or refugee resettlement agency working with Afghan Refugees, ZACAH is committed to offering rental assistance where other forms of state/federal assistance are not available. Please complete the application form by clicking HERE.
Due to the volume of applications during COVID-19, please allow at least one week for ZACAH to process the application. Additionally, please do not submit an application until a housing unit has been identified as this will slow down to approval process. If, for any reason, you need to apply before a unit has been identified or confirmed, please give us a call so we can understand how to best support you and process the application.
If you are a county worker, social worker, donor or advocate and want to reach out to us for questions or information, you can write, call or email us at:
