Michigan residents are fortunate to have access to free legal services provided by the Michigan Foreclosure Prevention Project (MFPP) through several major legal services offices around the state. The eleven attorneys who make up MFPP provide direct legal representation to homeowners, provide legal support to certified nonprofit housing counselors, coordinate policy advocacy and provide technical training and support. The Kresge Foundation, Ford Foundation, Michigan State Bar Foundation, Institute for Foreclosure Legal Assistance and the Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) fund the Michigan Foreclosure Prevention Project.
MFPP is a program of the Michigan Poverty Law Program, a cooperative of Legal Services of South Central Michigan and The University of Michigan Law School. To access free legal services provided by MFPP, homeowners should contact their local legal services office.
