About the MI Affordable, Healthy Homes Proposal

Rising housing costs and utility bills. Heat waves and cold snaps leaking into homes. Flooded basements. Lead paint and asbestos.

Michiganders have been staring down a shockingly expensive market, aging housing stock and climate change, and each threat is poised to become more severe. But billions of dollars in funds creates a critical opportunity for state decision makers to address these crises head on.

That’s why Resilient Homes Michigan—a broad coalition of influential organizations, associations and businesses—came together and developed a comprehensive solution called MI Affordable, Healthy Homes.

This proposal is a $1.65 billion investment introduced in 2022 by State Sen. Stephanie Chang (D-Detroit) and State Rep. Bill Sowerby (D-Clinton Township) that aligns with Michigan's Statewide Housing Plan. The legislation will give more Michiganders access to affordable housing that is free of pollutants, protects us from the elements, and combats climate change.

We hope you can join us.
