MSHDA survey open to residents

Effort to overcome housing challenges underway

The Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) is leading a collaborative, statewide, data-driven effort to overcome Michigan's housing challenges.

According to the Michigan Statewide Housing Needs Assessment, about 50% of our state's renters, and 25% of its homeowners pay too much for housing. A Statewide Housing Plan will help identify the causes of this and other housing issues and what must be done to address them equitably, inclusively, and in a way that best leverages all available resources.

Your feedback and insights will help to inform goals and strategies for housing in our state.

MSHDA is asking residents to complete a survey to support the development of Michigan's first five-year statewide housing plan. The survey is anonymous and should take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
