The State of Michigan’s COVID Emergency Rental Assistance Program (“the Program”) is designed to keep Michigan residents who fell behind on their rent and utilities during the COVID-19 pandemic in their homes. The program utilizes a collaborative community process to expedite rental and utility assistance to
COVID-19 affected tenants and their landlords.
CHN will work with tenants and landlords to provide rental, utility and internet assistance for eligible renter households. Legal services for renters will be provided by local legal aid organizations funded by grants made through the Michigan State Bar Foundation.
1-888-441-1742 is the county wide phone hotline number that any tenant of landlord can use.
