Michigan Offers Homeowners $500 a Month to House Illegals – American Faith

The state of Michigan is reportedly introducing a program offering citizens $500 a month to take in illegal migrants.

The program, called the Newcomer Rental Subsidy, is set to provide shelter for “refugees.”

The assistance would be available to homeowners for up to a year, according to

Amy Hovey, executive director of the Michigan State Housing Development Authority, said the program would help migrants “build a new life here.”

According to the state, those eligible include, refugees, asylees, special immigration visa holders, victims of human trafficking, Cuban and Haitian entrants, Afghan nationals, and Ukrainian humanitarian parolees.

Others who qualify include individuals who arrived under the Family Reunification Parole Process for El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Colombia, individuals with a pending asylum application, and other immigrant individuals on a case-by-case basis.

“This program is truly a win-win, as it addresses the most pressing barrier to refugee resettlement by meeting housing needs while setting up families for success with increased employment and opportunity,” Hovey said in a statement.

The program is reportedly paid for with $4 million funded from the Michigan Housing and Community Development Fund.
