Low-to-moderate income Dearborn residents unable to pay their rent, mortgage or utilities due to the financial impact of COVID-19 can apply beginning Monday, Jan. 18 to receive up to $5,000 to cover up to six months’ worth of bills through a new grant program offered by the City of Dearborn.
This financial assistance for rent, mortgage and utilities is in the form of grants, meaning that it does not need to be repaid by residents who qualify for the program. Payments will be made directly to the landlord, mortgage and/or utility company by the agencies administering the grant program. Residents will not receive the money themselves.
Residents will apply for the grants through one of two charitable agencies working with the City:
ACCESS and the LAHC.
