Audit: Michigan’s foreclosure prevention program failed to ensure all recipients were eligible

LANSING — The Michigan State Housing Development Authority didn’t make sure that all applicants for mortgage assistance were eligible before awarding dollars from the federal Hardest Hit Fund, according to an audit.

The report released Wednesday by Michigan’s Auditor General found several instances of homeowners who had received financial assistance even though MSHDA had not sufficiently verified that they met income and hardship requirements.

“As a result, MSHDA may have provided HHF Program assistance to homeowners who were not hit hardest by the economic and housing market downturn,” according to the report.
