COVID-19 Notice

special announcement.png
All persons seeking assistance from the United Community Housing Coalition (UCHC) or Michigan Legal Services (MLS):


Due to the current public health concerns about the spread of the COVID-19, UCHC and MLS are closing the offices to the public until further notice; however, our staff is still working. We will be re-evaluating the situation daily to determine when it is safe to reopen the office. For regular updates, please visit our website and social media pages.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
 
  1. If you’re behind on rent and need assistance, click here to apply for CERA funds.

  2. If you've received a summons, make sure to attend your Zoom hearing (click here for instructions). 
    All first hearings are being adjourned, but if you don’t appear you will have a judgment entered against you. 

  3. UCHC, MLS, and Lakeshore Legal are present in Zoom courtrooms and can offer you legal assistance.

  4. If you need assistance, call 313-355-3352 or email us at eviction@uchcdetroit.org.
    We will be checking these regularly.


If you are at risk of property tax foreclosure:
call UCHC's Tax Foreclosure Hotline at 313-405-7726

  1. If you are a low-income Detroit homeowner, we recommend you complete the HOPE poverty tax exemption application. You may have gotten a bright yellow application in the mail inviting you to apply for HOPE. Fill it out on your own or come to UCHC when our offices reopen. This is a good idea for all low-income owners, even if you aren’t facing foreclosure.

  2. If you're a low-income owner AND you have back taxes owing to the Wayne County Treasurer, the HOPE program could help you qualify for a new payment plan called Pay As You Stay (PAYS). This plan can significantly reduce debt. See the Resources page on our website for more information.

  3. For more information about HOPE and PAYS, as well as a link to the HOPE application, click here.

  4. If you're interested in the Make It Home program, call 313-774-0361.

  5. If you need to reach us regarding an immediate tax matter, please call our tax hotline at 313-405-7726 and leave a clear message with a number to reach you, or email us at taxhotline@uchcdetroit.org. 

If you have a payment to make:

We will be accepting payments by mail. However, please do not mail cash, and be sure to keep your money order receipt. While it is unlikely, sometimes mail does not make it to its destination, and we can’t be responsible for the U.S. Mail. Money orders should be made payable to UCHC and mailed to us at 2727 Second Avenue, Suite 313, Detroit, MI 48201.


For any other issues or questions:
Email help@uchcdetroit.org clearly stating your issue or question so we can direct you to the appropriate staff. We will attempt to resolve as many issues as possible by phone or email. 
We understand that this is a very trying time for everyone as we seek to provide the best possible housing services while protecting public health and safety. Please bear with us and stay safe.

Sincerely,

Ted Phillips, Executive Director                 and       Marilyn Mullane, Executive Director
