We moved my disabled mother to a HUD building last year. The best resource I found was on the HUD web site: U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)

That site should list every HUD building in MN; it is my understanding that HUD buildings are the only ones that offer subsidized or sliding fee rent.

Prior to her disability certification, we had a really hard time finding a place because most of the sliding fee buildings wouldn't take people under 62 and she was 59 at the time.

I should clarify that most of the sliding fee SENIORS buildings wouldn't accept residents under 62.

I just helped a friend down there with the same issue. I did the research and because he needed to be downtown in Minneapolis since he had no car, these are the buildings I checked out with him:
314 Hennepin Apartments
314 Hennepin Ave (keep in mind this is a Mpls Public Housing high rise - MPHA dot something)

Loring Towers
15 E Grant St
These are all studio apartments but a very short wait. I got a weird vibe in this place, and there are a lot of police calls here for drugs and prostitution. Seriously - it's a very convenient place on Nicollet and Grant but keep looking.

Last but not least...
Volunteers of America Nicollet Towers
1350 Nicollet
We were blown away by this place, how well-run it appeared and the great reviews. Too bad the waiting list is five years long, an applications aren't even going to be opened up until 2016. We were told to 'keep calling the automated voice menu to hear if/when they'll open their application list again'. My guess is this is THE place to get into.

My friend still lives at his studio apt on 12th and Yale. Good enough for now.
