I was working with this step forward the Presque Isle County Treasurer gave me the info I was so excited at first. I could never seem to provide enough information. I would send the papers they asked for. I send a copy of my land contract and then they ask if all...

I have been haggling with this agency for nearly a month now. Whatever documents I send seem to never be the right ones. They seem to ask all over again for things I've sent already, or they seem to have not read the ones I've sent, or they seem to have lost them....

Step Forward Michigan
#600349
My and I own a home that is now in foreclosure. I tried getting assistance through Step Forward and was denied. They said because my mother didn't file taxes they could not verify her income. I explained to them that my mother did not have enough earned income to file taxes. However, I sent proof of her SSI income. In the end they refused to assist.

I was turned down for tax assistance because "my income did not decline", though declining income is not on their "quick checklist" that tells you whether or not you will qualify before you dive into this pit of wasted hours of paperwork. My income did go from $4000...

My experience with Step Forward Michigan has been a 3 year process of non productivity. In fact a former employee of Step Forward who now works for Oakland County was kind enough to tell me the truth about how applications are processed and declined based on the moods...

I was wrongfully denied assistance through Step Forward. I feel that they are really not trying to assist homeowners who have experienced a loss of income. They requested that I submit death certificates, bank statements etc. After jumping through hoops I was still...

I am behind 6 months on mortgage due to divorce and resulting loss of household income. Step Forward Michigan states that my divorce/loss of income is not a sufficient hardship because ex is on mortgage. Ex's unemployment is not a sufficient hardship because he does...
