Governor Signs Affordable Housing EO
Update: Feb 6-17, 2023
On February 6, Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed Executive Order, which shifts the administration of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) from the Michigan Strategic Fund to the Michigan State Housing and Development Authority (MSHDA). This change would create more flexibility and efficiency for the state to distribute funds for housing.
Last September, Governor Whitmer and MSHDA released the Statewide Housing Plan. The goals of this plan include building or rehabilitating 75,000 housing units, stabilizing housing for 100,000 families, weatherize and improve 15,000 homes, and decrease the number of unhoused individuals in the state.
