Whitmer OKs $4 Million For Rental Housing Assistance For Illegals In Michigan

  • The Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) Board approved a Newcomer Rental Subsidy (NRS) program that will provide temporary support for refugees and other immigrant populations coming to the state.
  • The NRS program will give refugees, asylees and other new populations from areas such as Ukraine, Cuba, Haiti and African countries the opportunity to apply for up to 12 months of rental subsidy assistance and, according to the MSHDA, will help ensure that families “successfully integrate to communities, become self-sufficient, and thrive.”
