The State of Michigan is requesting information on Housing from Michigan citizens. Please distribute within your networks! The voices of all families we serve are needed at this time!
The Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) is undertaking a planning process to create a new strategic housing plan in Michigan. This is the first such effort in some years. A major push to get resident feedback has been to circulate an online survey instrument so that residents (renters, homeowners) and stakeholders (landlords and developers) can weigh in on their priorities and needs. The links to the survey is: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MIHousingSurvey for English speakers. This link will take you to a survey that takes about 10 minutes to answer which guides the respondent to the right questions (which change depending on whether one is a renter, homeowner, landlord or developer).
Please share the survey with your networks and encourage folks to respond so that all communities have the opportunity to help shape the state's housing policy. In addition to doing an online survey, respondents can complete a survey over the phone by calling 1-833-312-2002 Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Helpline staff are also working with a translation service provider to assist Michiganders who speak limited English. The Survey Invitation/Flyers (English, Spanish, and Arabic) and PDFs of the survey (renter, homeowner, potential homebuyer, landlord) are also available at www.michigan.gov/housingplan.
Let's make sure all of our residents are heard!
