[ARCHIVED] Rental Assistance Program

Rental Assistance

The Royal Oak City Commission has entered into contract with the South Oakland Shelter and Legal Aid & Defender Association to operate a rental assistance program on behalf of the city.

The program is designed to keep no, low- and moderate-income Royal Oak renters from being evicted. Many households have experienced a loss of employment or significant reduction in income due to COVID-19. Renters may be eligible for financial assistance for unpaid rent and/or utilities dating back no more than three months. Payments are made directly to landlords, not the renter household.

People in need of help may contact either of the below organizations.

South Oakland Shelter P (248) 920-6000
Legal Aid & Defender Association (313) 967-5555
