     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

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.
