What is MSHDA's current policy on evictions during the COVID-19 pandemic?

On March 20, Governor Whitmer signed an executive order temporarily suspending evictions, allowing tenants and mobile home owners to remain in their homes during the COVID-19 pandemic. Likewise, part of the federal response to the COVID-19 pandemic, called the CARES Act, prohibits filing any court papers for an eviction based on nonpayment of rent, for a period of 120 days from the date of the Act, March 27, 2020.

We are adhering to these orders at properties financed, assisted or administered by MSHDA including but not limited to: Section 8, Section 236, Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC), Rural Housing, Tax-Exempt Bonds, Taxable Bonds, Neighborhood Preservation Program, TEAM, HOME, HOME TEAM Advantage and Pass-through programs.
