Step Forward Michigan Program
The Step Forward Michigan Program was established by the MHA to work directly with Michigan homeowners to help them stay in their home. The program provides up to a $30,000 interest free loan to assist with mortgage, property taxes, and/or condominium association fees. Hardest Hit Funds loans are forgivable at 20% each year, as long as the property remains the homeowner's primary residence.
