Federal homeowner pandemic assistance available

Livingston County homeowners negatively impacted by the pandemic can apply for assistance provided through a federal program.
The Livingston County United Way, Oakland Livingston Human Services Agency and the Livingston County Treasurer’s Office have teamed up to promote The Michigan Homeowner’s Assistance Fund, or MIHAF, part of the American Rescue Plan (ARP) package signed into law last March. It provided in excess of $242 million based on unemployed individuals and the number of mortgagors with delinquent mortgage payments.
The program can provide up to $25,000 per household to assist with delinquent mortgage, taxes, utilities and more. The Livingston County United Way, Oakland Livingston Human Services Agency and the Livingston County Treasurer’s Office have created a video to help residents identify their eligibility, prepare necessary documentation and apply.
