Washtenaw County Residents Protected Under New National Eviction Moratorium

On August 4, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a new eviction moratorium through October 3 protecting residents facing eviction.

Regardless of the eviction moratorium status in Washtenaw County, rental assistance is available for tenants facing pandemic-related hardships through the COVID-19 Emergency Rental Assistance (CERA) program. CERA is available for income eligible households who have fallen behind on costs associated with rent, utilities, and/or internet bills during the pandemic. 

The CERA application can be completed online. For those who are unable to or do not wish to use the online application, paper applications can also be found on the State of Michigan's website or by contacting HAWC at 734.961.1999. Paper applications must be emailed or mailed or dropped off at: Housing Access for Washtenaw County, 100 Arbana Drive, Ann Arbor, MI 48103.

If you need help applying for CERA assistance, please contact HAWC at 734.961.1999. A user guide is available in English and Spanish for tenants that need assistance with the application process on the Washtenaw County Office of Community and Economic Development's website.

More information is available from the County by viewing the press release in its entirety.
