On March 11, 2021, President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan (ARP) into law, which provides over $1.9 trillion in relief to address the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economy, public health, State and local governments, individuals, and businesses.

To address the need for homelessness assistance and supportive services, Congress appropriated $5 billion in ARP funds to be administered through HOME to perform four activities that must primarily benefit qualifying individuals and families who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, or in other vulnerable populations. These activities include: (1) development of affordable rental housing, (2) tenant-based rental assistance (TBRA), (3) provision of supportive services; and (4) acquisition and development of non-congregate shelter units. The program described in this notice for the use of the $5 billion in ARP funds is the HOME-American Rescue Plan or “HOME-ARP.”

The Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) was allocated $63,793,681 of HOME-ARP. The following draft program description and rental development addendum describes how MSHDA will utilize the HOME-ARP resource throughout the state of Michigan.
