A new report from the University of Michigan’s Poverty Solutions team finds eviction filings are rising again in Detroit.
The team found those filings are on track to return to their pre-pandemic levels as temporary emergency programs end. The report says at the city’s current filing rate, 61-thousand tenants will face eviction this year.
The report calls on the city administration to fully fund and implement the Right to Counsel Ordinance that was passed earlier this year. It’s meant to give legal representation to low-income Detroiters facing eviction.
