Leelanau County has housing funds available for emergency work on single-family owner-occupied homes.  Funds are being administered through Northwest MI Community Action Agency (NMCAA) on behalf of Leelanau County.


Examples of Emergency Projects include:  failing furnace, septic, well, broken windows, dangerous or unhealthy conditions.     


Homeowners must meet income eligibility requirements, occupy the home as their residence, and agree to a lien (mortgage) on the property if repair is more than $2,500.  (Mortgages are deferred with 0% interest and no required monthly payment.  Mortgage payable upon transfer of property by sale, death, or conveyance.)

For an application and more information:  contact Leslie Casselman at NWMCAA at 231-346-2121 or email:  lcasselman@nmcaa.net
