The board accepted a $260,000 McKnight Foundation grant to provide emergency assistance to North Minneapolis households at risk of eviction. 

As part of this pilot project, 200 low-income families will receive legal help, along with social and employment services. The county will work with NorthPoint Health and Wellness Center and Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid on this effort.
