Update: Newly submitted applications will be put on a waitlist.

The SAFHR program has received more requests than there are funds available. Effective immediately, all newly submitted applications will be placed on a waitlist and program staff will contact applicants directly if additional information is needed. Previously submitted applications will continue to be reviewed and paid pending the availability of funds.

 

All communication through the mo.sahfr@mhdc.com, compliance@mhdc.com will be limited. Call center hours will be limited and the chat feature within the application will be turned off.

 

The SAFHR program was designed to provide temporary immediate emergency assistance in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. After two years, over $600 million in federal stimulus funds assisted more than 100,000 applicants and prevented over 75,000 households from eviction. The SAFHR staff is grateful to have been able to help so many thousands of households and though the application portal will be closing, tenants with additional needs may be able to find assistance by calling 211 to locate a local non-profit who provide assistance through MHDC’s many other programs. Additionally, the Housing Stability and Eviction Diversion (HSED) program will continue to operate to help households with active eviction filings with legal assistance and case management. 

 

Look for additional resources by calling 211 or go to www.mohousingresources.com/hsed to find an HSED agency for help with a pending eviction.
