Limits Relaxed for Public Assistance Applicants

It’s now easier for Michigan residents to qualify for public assistance.

Effective today, a person may have up to $15,000 in assets to qualify for cash, food and emergency assistance.

Previous limits set by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services had been $500 in assets for State Emergency Relief, $3,000 for cash payments through the Family Independence Program, and $5,000 to qualify for the Food Assistance Program.

There will no longer be a limitation on how many vehicles a family owns.

Income limits for qualification will remain as they were.
