Tenants with active eviction cases may still receive funding. Make sure to attend your Zoom court hearing and ask to speak with an “agency attorney.”

If you have an active CERA application you can still use the MSHDA web portal to re-certify (ask for 3 additional months of assistance) and submit documents.
