RENT AND MORTGAGE RESOURCES
If payment arrangements with the landlord or mortgage company cannot be made, Rent and Mortgage Payment Assistance Programs may be able to assist people with their rent or mortgage payments if they meet eligibilitrequirements.  

Depending on the distribution of government funding, Community Action Agencies may also be able to provide financial assistance for rent or mortgages and also utility bills that have been or are at risk of being shut off 
(look under the "Utilities Resources" webpage on this website as well!).

You may also want to check with your House of Worship as many do have a separate fund for emergencies
like this.  Please do NOT call Houses of Worship you do not attend or belong to!  This help is usually for church MEMBERS or REGULAR ATTENDERS.  It is unreasonable to expect to receive help if you are not a member 
and do not contribute to the center with your time, talents and tithes!

Be sure and look under the "Financial Resources" webpages as well as there are charities that 
will help people with this as well esp. those that are ill!


NOTE!   

Nearly ALL of the agencies listed below REQUIRE you to apply for State Emergency Relief Funds  
FIRST at your local Department of Human Services site OR online BEFORE contacting them. 

You will either be approved for S.E.R. funds and receive a check from the D.H.S. department  
OR you will be turned down and will receive what is called a"decision notice" that D.H.S. will 
mail to you.  Do NOT throw away this notice!  You will need if you are turned down to apply 
for help from these other sources.

D.H.S. Home Ownership Services may help prevent loss of a home, providing services such as:
1.   House payments (mortgage or land-contract payments), including principal, interest, legal fees 
       and escrow for taxes and insurance.
2.   Property taxes and fees
3.   Mobile home lot rent for owners or purchasers of mobile homes
4.   Insurance coverage required by a mortgage or land contract

The lifetime Home Ownership Services maximum is $2000.  The lifetime maximum is the combined 
cumulative total of all home ownership service payments.  Home Ownership Services cannot be approved
if the the emergency was client-caused.  The total amount of taxes past due for all years does not exceed 
$2000.  A client-caused emergency is when an SER group fails to pay required payments for the six-month 
period prior to the month of application.  Good cause may exist (except for property taxes) as a basis for 
an applicant's failure to prevent an emergency.


ELDER LAW of Michigan 
Phone :  866-4000-9164
Website:  www.elderlawofmi.org/housing 
Elder Law of Michigan has extended its housing counseling services program to include help with 
tax and mortgage foreclosure prevention. With help from grants from the Michigan State Development 
Authority (MSHDA) and the National Community Reinvestment Coalition, our housing counselors are 
available to assist homeowners of all ages and incomes who are having trouble paying their property 
taxes or making mortgage payments.

Our HUD and MSHDA certified housing counselors can assist financially stressed homeowners with 
developing a plan to allow them to stay in their home. There are new federal programs and funds available, including funds to help eligible homeowners pay their property taxes. Our counselors are also available to 
assist people who have previously been foreclosed on with transitioning into safe and affordable housing.  
For more information about these programs and how we can help, visit our website or call to schedule an appointment with one of our housing counselors today. 


NOTE:  JUST ANNOUNCED 11/25/2013 
Recent legislation approved by Governor Snyder declares that if you are a disabled veteran owning 
your own home, you may be exempt from paying property taxes. Disabled veterans who have been 
discharged from the armed forces under honorable conditions and meet one of the following criteria 
now qualify for this tax exemption in Michigan:
a) Has been determined by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs to be permanently and
totally disabled as a result of military service and entitled to veterans’ benefits at the 100% rate.
b) Has a certificate from the United States Veterans’ Administration, or its successors, certifying that 
he or she is receiving or has received pecuniary assistance due to disability for specially adapted 
housing.
c) Has been rated by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs as individually unemployable.


NEW!!!    JUST ADDED 1/13/2013
Beginning Tuesday, Jan. 15th, 2013, The Michigan State Housing Development Authority will spend up 
to $30,000 each to pay a homeowner's delinquent taxes, interest, fees and condominium association dues! 
Under the program, homeowners seeking relief have to apply online at www.stepforwardmichigan.org
If approved, the money will be sent to the county treasurer's office, which will pay off the delinquent taxes. 

To qualify, homeowners have to use their homes as their primary residences, demonstrate significant 
hardship that has caused them to fall behind on their property taxes and have less than six months of
family cash reserves.  A county treasurer's office retains the right to disapprOve assistance, even after 
MiSHD approves it. At $206 million statewide, the program could help at least 6,800 people at the maximum amount of $30,000 each!


NEW!   JUST ADDED 5/7/2013
Michigan's Attorney General and head of a new state agency for veterans said Tuesday that $5 million
in grants will be available to help military service members and veterans struggling to keep their homes 
as a result of the mortgage foreclosure crisis.  Attorney General Bill Schuette and the Director of the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency Jeff Barnes launched the Michigan Veterans Homeowners Assistance Program
which will provide money for military service members and veterans who are currently at risk of losing, or 
who have lost, their homes to foreclosure since 2006.The grants will be awarded on a first-come, first-served 
basis until the money runs out and can be used in a variety of ways, like curing a default, providing a loan modification or refinancing a mortgage. Grants will be sent directly to the vendors, like the lenders or govern-
ment entities.  All active and reserve military service members are eligible as well as Air and National Guard, honorably discharged veterans and surviving spouses of Michigan service members who had a combat-related death.  The state currently runs a grant program to help war-time veterans who are struggling financially, but 
this will be expanded to apply to all veterans as well as active military members. They expect thousands of 
people will be assisted by the program and estimated the $5 million will last at least two years

Eviction Diversion Program            JUST ADDED 2/23/2014 
Phone:  877-964-4700   Legal Aid & Defender Association 
This program is a voluntary program designed to assist landlords and tenants in resolving back-rent 
situations without a credit-damaging court judgement. The program is designed to prevent evictions 
by intervening before persons lose their home for non-payment of rent.  Landlords filing for evictions 
of their tenants for non-payment of rent will be provided with a referral form to Eviction Diversion, which 
they will then serve upon their tenant.  Qualified tenants will then meet with Eviction Diversion specialists
to determine eligibility and pool the funding to financially assist in paying up to three months of unpaid 
rent.  Legal representation for qualified tenants will be provided free of charge by attorneys from the Legal 
Aid & Defender Association.  Court cases will then be assigned to the Eviction Diversion Docket before the
judge where the parties will sign an agreement to prevent entry of judgment and time to resolve financial 
issues.

DID YOU KNOW?

If you had an FHA insured mortgage, you may be eligible for a REFUND?  Go to http://www.hud.gov/offices/hsg/comp/refunds/index.cfm  OR  call 1-800 697-6967


Also, a new tax bill allows homeowners to deduct the cost of Private Mortgage Insurance from their taxes, 
which could mean savings of up to $500.  If you pay PMI, make sure you get the deduction.


If you have an FHA loan, the Federal agency has steps for borrowers to use if they go into default.  These 
might include a specific period of no mortgage payments, to be followed by a specific period of on-time 
payments.  After that, the mortgage could be rewritten to incorporate the missed payments and extra fees.  
OR they might include cashing in a portion of the mortgage insurance that's required on an FHA loan and 
using that cash to reinstate the mortgage.  The cashed-in part of the insurance would remain as a lien on 
the house to be paid back when it's sold or refinanced.


If your loan is a backed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac--as most conventional, non-FHA loans are--you 
can also ask the lender for help getting past a hard time as these agencies can easily modify your loan.  
Call 800-287-8685.


Another source if you're having problems meeting a mortgage is Housing Counseling Referral Service 
at 800-569-4287.
