Bridges Application

Bridges Application

This application is for the Bridges Program only. Read the instructions for each section and answer all required questions. Incomplete applications will slow processing and may be returned. Once completed, please give this form to your local Housing Agency. Do not send it to Minnesota Housing.

Housing Choice Voucher Requirement

To receive Bridges rental assistance, you must also apply for a Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher. If the waiting list is currently closed, you must apply as soon as the waiting list opens and provide evidence of your application. Failure to do so will result in termination from the Bridges program, and you will no longer receive a rent subsidy.
