Michigan State Housing Development Authority
In support of the Campaign to End Homelessness in Michigan, changes to the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) program promote Housing First through prevention and rapid re-housing activities. Therefore, at a regional and community level it is essential for all working with those in poverty and homelessness to recognize the proven need to move from a shelter based program to a Housing First program where prevention and rapid re-housing are key.

As you may know, cases of fraud in the use of state and federal housing dollars are not uncommon. Fraud prevention and detection is a part of every agency's responsibility. In an effort to prevent fraud, MSHDA is asking all agencies using ESG to have an active Fraud Policy that works to prevent fraud and addresses how fraud will be handled if it occurs.
Please visit the following websites to help develop your own Fraud Policies and Guidelines and once completed, please provide to each staff member and to your MSHDA Homeless Assistance Specialist.
