LANSING, Mich. — The city of Lansing expects to receive around $27.3 million in federal dollars for emergency rental assistance.

The aid will be for people who are affected by the coronavirus pandemic and live in the Lansing area. Once approved by the state Legislature and governor, the money would come from Michigan State Housing Development Authority.

“Housing and homeless prevention is so important, especially now with the COVID-19 pandemic. I am proud that Lansing was chosen to get these dollars out to residents, and I thank MSHDA for their continued support of our community. I look forward to working with Ingham County Continuum of Care and local agencies to administer these necessary funds,” Schor said, in a statement.

Schor said a resolution to accept the money once the state approves it has been sent to city council.

Details on how you can apply for the money will soon be available.

People living in the Lansing area who need help are also encouraged to utilize the Lansing CARES rental and mortgage assistance program.
