Michigan Consolidated Plan

According to HUD, the Consolidated Plan creates the opportunity for strategic planning and citizen participation to take place in a comprehensive context; it allows local governments, community organizations and citizens to address the larger picture in which these programs operate, offering the State a better chance to shape the various programs into effective coordinated strategies.

PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD FOR THE DRAFT 2016 MICHIGAN CONSOLIDATED PLAN

Prior to submission for further funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Office of Community Planning and Development, the State of Michigan is required to prepare a Consolidated Housing and Community Development Plan (the Consolidated Plan). The Consolidated Plan identifies housing and community development needs and proposes a strategy by which those needs will be addressed during the next program year (July 1, 2016 – June 30, 2017). The action plan is funded by four formula programs covered in the Michigan Consolidated Plan: HOME; Community Development Block Grant (CDBG); Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA); and Emergency Solution Grants (ESG). The Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) is responsible for preparing the Michigan Consolidated Plan and soliciting comments from the public regarding the plan.

The initial period for public comments on the citizen participation plan and identifying current housing and community needs was conducted at regional meetings.  The final 30-day comment period will commence on April 8, 2016 and end on May 9, 2016 and will focus on the draft Consolidated Plan. Copies of the 2016 Michigan Consolidated Plan may be downloaded free of charge from the MSHDA website at www.michigan.gov/mshda and the Michigan Economic Development Corporation website at http://www.michiganbusiness.org/public-notices-rfps/.
