Oakland County Eviction Diversion Program

The Eviction Diversion Program (EDP) is designed to keep Michigan residents who fell behind on their rent during COVID-19 in rental housing. The program utilizes a special process which may involve the district court to get fast rental assistance for renters who have been impacted. By participating in this program, landlords can receive up to 90% of a tenant’s back rent paid in a lump sum and are required to forgive late fees. Additional information and specific guidelines are provided here: Eviction Diversion Program MSHDA

 
If you live in Oakland County and fell behind on your rent, please contact Community Housing Network’s Housing Resource Center (HRC) to discuss EDP assistance. Leave a message at 248-269-1335 or (toll-free) 1-866-282-3119 and a housing specialist will call you back soon for your intake screening. A housing specialist will review EDP with you and collect the necessary documentation. Those interested in this program must also contact Lakeshore Legal Aid to be connected with legal assistance. Call the Lakeshore Legal Aid Hotline at 888-783-8190 or you can apply online at michiganlegalhelp.org.
