MSHDA Investing in Community Housing (MICH)

The MSHDA Investing in Community Housing (MICH) Program will utilize United States Department of the Treasury American Rescue Plan (ARP) Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF) as a grant mechanism within MSHDA's Neighborhood Development Division (NDD). 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 households at or below 185% Federal Poverty Guidelines and is subject to availability of funding and regional distribution of resources.

The MI-HOPE online applicant portal is currently closed to the general public.

Each subrecipient agency will utilize its written program guidelines to establish funding priorities and their individual selection process and criteria. Also, each subrecipient agency may elect to collect additional documentation at their discretion. If you need assistance completing the application, please contact MI-HOPE 211 at 844-477-0340.
