The Michigan Homeowner Assistance Nonprofit Housing Corporation (MHA) acting through Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) has received federal funds from the U.S. Department of Treasury to help Michigan take a step forward through a comprehensive, statewide strategy that is aimed to help homeowners who are at high risk of default or foreclosure.
Effective January 15, 2013, Step Forward Michigan will begin taking applications online to assist homeowners located in a participating county with past due property taxes using its Loan Rescue Program. If determined eligible, a onetime payment can be sent directly to the county treasurer to pay outstanding county and local property taxes. Homeowners can visit www.stepforwardmichigan.org
to review details and begin an application.
