To thank those Minnesotans who worked on the frontlines during the COVID-19 peacetime emergency, Gov. Tim Walz signed Frontline Worker Payments into law April 29, 2022, enabling those workers to apply for Frontline Worker Pay.

Eligibility

Eligibility is based on both work requirements and job sector

Where to apply

The Frontline Worker Pay application is open June 8 through July 22, 2022. Eligible workers will have 45 days to apply for Frontline Worker Pay.

Applications can be submitted at frontlinepay.mn.gov. The 45-day application period will be followed by a 15-day period to allow for appeals from those whose applications were denied. After verification and processing of the applications are completed, payments are anticipated in early fall. All applications will move through the process at the same time and payments will be forwarded for processing together.
