Newcomer Rental Subsidy (NRS) Program

The Office of Global Michigan will administer a new program that provides temporary rental subsidies to help address critical housing challenges for newcomers in Michigan. The Newcomer Rental Subsidy program is intended to increase access to affordable and better housing, and expand the options for areas of residence. This will contribute to lowering poverty rates, creating more employment opportunities, and more rapid social integration while maintaining dignity. The Office of Global Michigan plans to start accepting applications in October.
