How to Report Fraud

The Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) is no longer associated with the telephone number 800-327-9158. MSHDA is not awarding cruises, store gift cards, or promoting any sweepstakes or contests. MSHDA will never ask for credit card information or refer calls to solicitors who ask for personal information. Any representations to the contrary are false and should be immediately reported to MSHDA by calling 517-373-8326 or by email. Fraud reports can also be made to the Consumer Protection Division of the Attorney General's office at (517) 373-1140, toll free 1-877-765-8388, or online.


MSHDA does not work with non-Michigan homeowners and when working with Michigan residents, our services are free. Additionally, MSHDA and/or State of Michigan staff do not conduct a home visit as part of the Step Forward assistance program. Any representations to the contrary are false and should be immediately reported to MSHDA.

To report fraud, waste, abuse or gross mismanagement in MSHDA or MSHDA programs, call 517-373-8326 or send an email to MSHDA-programcompliance@michigan.gov and please provide a detailed description of the activity you wish to report, the names of the individuals and departments involved, dates and times of the incident, the location the incident occurred, and any additional information you feel is needed regarding the activity.

MSHDA will protect the identity of an individual making a report through the hotline to the maximum extent permitted by law (for example, by using applicable exemptions and exclusions of the Freedom of Information Act). If an individual making a report does do not wish to disclose their identity, they may remain anonymous when contacting the hotline. However, it is important to note that anonymity may impede a quick or thorough investigation or the success of a later prosecution.

If you have knowledge or allegations of fraud, waste, abuse or gross mismanagement involving 1602 Funds, call the U.S. Treasury Fraud Hotline at 800-359-3898. Calls can be made anonymously and confidentially.
