On Friday, Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed Executive Order 2020-134, extending the temporary suspension of evictions until July 15th and creating the Eviction Diversion Program, which outlines a process for renters to get fast rental assistance or establish a manageable payment plan to keep Michiganders in their homes.

Rental assistance under the Eviction Diversion Program will be available beginning July 16th.

"No Michigander should have to worry about losing their home during a global health pandemic, and at the same time, landlords and management companies need rent from their tenants to sustain their businesses," said Governor Whitmer. "This innovative new program will save lives, save money, and save businesses by keeping families in their homes and providing immediate financial relief to landlords for back rent they're due."

Under The Order, $50 Million of rental assistance will be made available in the form of lump-sum payments to landlords in exchange for allowing tenants to remain in their homes, forgiving late fees and up to 10% of the amount due. Tenants whose back rent is not completely covered by the Eviction Diversion Program will be entered into manageable payment plans facilitated by Supreme Court Administrative Order 2020-17.

The program was created following the passage of Senate Bill 690, which passed unanimously out of both the Michigan House and Senate on June 17th. The legislation appropriated $60 Million in Coronavirus Relief Funding to the Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity for the creation of a rental assistance program to assist tenants and landlords after the eviction moratorium concludes.
