Step Forward Michigan

Michigan received federal funds to assist homeowners in preventing property tax foreclosure. The Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) is using a special program called Step Forward Michigan to offer interest free, payment free, forgivable Hardest Hit Fund loans of up to $30,000.00 to help homeowners pay property taxes owed to the county or local municipality.

You may be eligible if:

  • You own and lived in your home when the property taxes were due (your name is on the recorded deed to the property)
  • You have less than $10,000.00 in the bank (not including retirement accounts)
  • You have enough income to pay next year's property taxes

Go to Step Forward Michigan or contact the Treasurer's Office for more information and to apply for help.
