The East Riverfront is a highly desirable residential area that until now hasn't had many options 
for seniors. Presbyterian Villages of Michigan, Henry Ford Health System, the Center for Senior Independence, and United Methodist Retirement Communities will dedicate the first model of 
affordable assisted living in Detroit, Rivertown Neighborhood, on Friday, April 12, 2013. The grand 
opening will also serve as the groundbreaking for a second phase of the project which includes 
50 independent living apartments, skilled nursing care, a neighborhood café, and community 
gardens. For information about the project call 248-281-2020 or slloyd@PVM.org.

Michigan Public Housing Authorities

To apply for public housing or Section 8 vouchers, visit your local public housing agency.  
Many have long waiting lists, so you should apply at more than one housing agency.  When 
you see an "list-opening" announcement in your local paper or hear about one, BE SURE TO 
GET TO THE AGENCY EARLY AND ON THE APPOINTED DAY--and bring the required documents 
with you!  There will be many people there to also apply and you don't want to be left out because 
you are not prepared!

To apply for other low-income housing programs at privately owned apartments, visit the management office of the apartment building.  Many complexes that are not normally "low-income" DO set aside 
some apartments for those on limited incomes!

Michigan law allows low-income senior citizens to terminate rental agreements if they qualify and 
are offered the opportunity for subsidized senior housing.  Tenants who qualify must have occupied 
their rental unit for more than 13 months and must provide a 60-day written notice.  The law also 
applies to tenants who can no longer live independently .  To be released from rental agreements 
under these circumstances, a notarized statement from a physician is necessary.

NEW Rental Assistance housing programs! Project Permanency Plus (PP+) Permanent Housing Program, Project Permanency 3, and Focus on Family program. 

The program provides on-going rental assistance to disabled individuals (18 
years of age and older) and families that 
rent units in the private rental housing market.   To qualify, the individual or 
family income must not exceed HUD limits, and MUST be HOMELESS and able to prove this!   (Program is currently at capacity).

Once the NLSM accepts an individual or family into PP+, the individual or family 
then finds its own rental unit.  To be eligible, a unit must be located within Wayne County (outside of the City of Detroit, Highland Park, Hamtramck, Harper Woods 
or the five Grosse Pointes), meet HUD housing quality standards and pass a quality housing inspection, and have a rent amount that is within the limits/standards of the program.

Tenant rent is based upon income.  
Tenants typically pay 30-40% of the adjusted gross income for rent and utilities depending on the cost to rent the unit.  NLSM pays the difference between the individual or family's portion of rent and the contract rent to the owner.  


For Persons Diagnosed with HIV or AIDS

Do you need help paying rent in Lapeer, Livingston, Macomb, Oakland or St. Clair Counties?

The Warren-EMA Tenant Based Rental Assistance Program is a federally-funded program that assists you in paying your 
rent if your income falls within allowable limits.  A waiting list is being established 
for qualified applicants.  If you wish to 
have an application mailed to you, please call 586-574-4680 and leave your name and address on the answering machine.
(NOTE:  This list may be currently closed---please contact them to check on this!)

NOTE:   Public housing allows for low-income people to obtain affordable housing with a subsidy 
from the government.  Individuals who have been evicted from public housing because of drug-related 
criminal activity are ineligible for public housing for three years.  The housing provider has the discretion 
to shorten the three year period if the person successfully completes a rehab program. Any household with 
a member who is subject to lifetime registration under the sex offender registration and any household with 
a member who has been convicted methamphetamine production Is permanently ineligible for public housing.  
Individuals who have engaged in drug-related criminal activity, violent criminal activity or any other criminal 
activity that would adversely affect the health, safety or right to peaceful enjoyment, may be denied public 
housing if the criminal activity occurred a "reasonable" time before the person seeks admission.  If you have 
been denied public housing or face eviction from public housing, please contact the Legal Aid & Defender office in your area (Look under the "Legal Resources" page for these numbers).
