MSHDA awards $7.4 million in grants for energy-efficient home upgrades through MI-HOPE

LANSING, Mich. – The Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) has awarded $7.4 million in grants to organizations across the state in a third wave of funding for the Michigan Housing Opportunities Promoting Energy Efficiency program (MI-HOPE).

“In such a short time with MI-HOPE, we’ve been able to make significant progress rehabilitating homes for our neighbors in communities all over Michigan. With this round of awards, new and existing grantees will make great strides in expanding our impact this year,” said Amy Hovey, MSHDA chief executive officer and executive director. “As we invest in updating these aging homes, we are pursuing sustainable, green solutions that will have a lasting effect for years to come.”

Since October 2022, MSHDA has provided MI-HOPE grants to local government and nonprofit agencies, who distribute support to residents in their communities through an application process. Homeowners can increase the energy efficiency of their homes through repairs and upgrades, such as roof and window replacement, HVAC modifications, electrical and appliance upgrades, storm door installation and more.

In this round of funding, which comes from state-appropriated federal American Rescue Plan (ARP) money, MSHDA awarded $3,064,500 to the following organizations:

  • Albion Economic Development Corporation: $495,000
  • Alger Marquette Community Action Board: $300,000
  • City of Highland Park: $300,000
  • City of Owosso: $160,000

  • Habitat for Humanity of Oakland County: $346,500
  • Neighborhoods Inc. of Battle Creek: $495,000
  • Village of Cassopolis: $198,000

An additional $4,358,250 was granted to 12 high performing organizations who previously received MI-HOPE funding. These grantees successfully disbursed their previous funds and have now received the following grants to continue their work:

  • Alger Marquette Community Action Board: $50,000
