This funding will be made available statewide based on a formal subrecipient award structure. MICH will provide occupied single family home rehabilitation, limited to energy-efficiency and accessibility activities.  Funding is restricted to provide assistance to households at or below 185% Federal Poverty Guidelines and is subject to availability of funding and regional distribution of resources.
