What is the state doing to protect homeowners from falling into foreclosure during this crisis?

‚Äč

Michigan has been provided federal funds from U.S. Treasury, which were established under section 3206 of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 to be provided to homeowners for the purpose of preventing mortgage delinquencies, defaults, foreclosure, loss of utilities or home energy services, and displacements of homeowners experiencing financial hardships after January 21, 2020.  Michigan is currently in the process of creating our state plan and we expect it to be available to struggling homeowners in the next few months. We will continue to provide updates as more information becomes available. Please visit the Michigan Homeowner Assistance Fund (MIHAF) web page at: www.michigan.gov/MIHAF.

If you are experiencing trouble paying your property taxes, please contact your county treasurer's office directly.
