What we do
The Outreach team provides information about housing resources and related supports Michigan residents need to maintain their housing stability. Areas of focus include homeownership, rental housing and ending homelessness, neighborhood stabilization, credit counseling and more. We engage partners, stakeholders, and legislators to spread awareness of MSHDA and partner programs and services through live and virtual housing fairs and educational workshops.
The MSHDA Outreach Initiatives provide services throughout many counties and cities throughout the State of Michigan in the form of:
- Resource fairs
- Community engagement and involvement
- Educational workshops and free credit counseling
- Providing materials to reduce homelessness and create financial solvency
The MSHDA Outreach Initiatives links Michigan citizens to MSHDA resources through:
- Legislative and governmental engagement
- Partnering with community and faith-based organizations
The Outreach team has become the primary source to disseminate MSHDA's programs and products to citizens. We offer relationships, partnerships, innovative social media techniques and direct community engagement via housing resource fairs.
