Last month, 579 people sought utility assistance through MIFA's Emergency Services department--a 48% increase over the same time period last year. Rent and mortgage requests were up 64% and 40%, respectively.

MIFA's Emergency Services staff hears stories every day of parents who work but struggle to keep the lights and heat on, of individuals who have been laid off and can't afford their rent, and of seniors on fixed incomes for whom rising costs have made basic necessities unaffordable.

You can assist MIFA in helping those in need by adding $1 (or more) to your monthly utility bill. Read more about the Plus-1 program and sign up here.
