Providing services in cities across United States and in Canada, our maid services take 
on one patient at a time, each of whom receives one general house cleaning per month 
for two consecutive months. However, we can’t always guarantee there will be an available 
maid service in your area.
&
Please be sure to fill out the application completely so we may begin the process of 
matching you with a maid service as soon as possible. If during this process you learn 
there is no maid services available in your area, please continue filling out the application, 
so that our system may continue to search for a match.

Once you are matched, you will be asked to provide us with a note from your physician 
confirming you are in treatment. Upon receipt of that note, you will be notified by the 
maid service to schedule your first cleaning.

The State Emergency Relief Program (S.E.R.) provides immediate help to individuals 
and families facing conditions of extreme hardship OR for emergencies that threaten 
health and safety. Through a combination of direct financial assistance and contracts 
with a network of non-profit organizations such as the Salvation Army and local Com-
munity Action Organizations, S.E.R. helps low-income households meet emergency 
needs such as home repairs. The S.E.R. Program is primarily designed to maintain 
low-income households who are normally able to meet their needs but occasionally 
need help when unexpected emergency situations arise.The S.E.R. Program is not an 
appropriate solution to ongoing or chronic financial difficulties. Only local D.H.S. ex-
perts should make eligibility determinations for this program due to many variables.

Emergency Repair Program: 
This emergency assistance program is offered to owner-occupied properties in partici-
pating Washtenaw County jurisdictions. 
Services:
Emergency repair grants or loans may be offered to pay for construction work to correct 
items that are determined by the Rehabilitation Specialist to be of an immediate nature. 
The OCED Emergency Repair Program can currently assist eligible homeowners with 
urgent repairs related to furnaces, water heaters or sewer issues. Emergency grants will 
be limited to a one-time assistance during a five-year period regardless of whether a grant 
or loan was received originally. This program offers funding for urgent repairs up to $5,000 
as a grant or up to $10,000 as a deferred payment loan to low-income, owner-occupied hous-
eholds within the jurisdictions of the Urban County. Emergency repair loans shall be in the 
form of a deferred, no interest property lien that is forgiven at a rate of one-fifth per year for 
the five-year period after project completion.

The Owner-Occupied Housing Rehabilitation Program 
Assists homeowners in many areas of Washtenaw County with needed home repairs. 
The Housing Rehabilitation Program can provide home improvements to owner-occu-
pied homes throughout Urban County jurisdictions for families earning 80% or less of 
the area median income. Through this program, eligible work is assigned to an OCED-
approved, licensed contractor. There is no immediate cost to the homeowner for these 
repairs, but the cost of the project will result in a 0% interest lien that will run with the 
property until the house is sold. There are no payments required until the time of sale 
or change in ownership. This property lien is gradually forgiven over a 30-year period 
following the completion of the rehabilitation work. If the owner resides in the property 
for the full 30-year period, the lien will be completely forgiven and no payment will be 
required. Due to high demand for the program there is a long waiting list for services, 
approximately 6-12 months.
NOTE: At this time the Single Family Housing Rehabilitation Program waiting list is closed. 
We are not accepting new applications for the Single Family Housing Rehabilitation Program
at this time.You should still call us if you are experiencing an emergency situation with your 
furnace, water heater or sewer line. Updated: 7/1/20
