COVID Emergency Rental Assistance

Having trouble paying or receiving rent? Federal funds are available to help tenants facing pandemic-related hardships avoid eviction while also ensuring landlords can recoup owed rent through the COVID Emergency Rental Assistance (CERA) program. CERA is administered locally through a partnership between the Washtenaw County Office of Community & Economic Development, Housing Access for Washtenaw County (HAWC), and SOS Community Services.

The online application may be found at MSHDA - CERA (michigan.gov) or CERAapp.michigan.gov or michigan.gov/cera .


For those who are unable or do not wish to use the online application, paper applications can also be found at michigan.gov/cera . Applications must be emailed to [email protected] or mailed to:


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.
