The cost to rent and own a home has surged upward. So have the costs to run water and keep the lights on. Home repairs and materials are hard to come by; their bills hard to swallow. On top of all this, heat waves and cold snaps leak into homes; basements flood; and lead paint and asbestos sick.
Michigan's housing cannot meet the basic needs of Michigan's workers, its families, nor its retirees, and the weather effects of climate change is making it all worse. Michiganders are paying the price with their pocketbooks, their comfort, and their safety.
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.
It's a $1.65 billion investment to give tens of thousands of Michiganders and their families access to affordable housing that is also free of pollutants, protects them from the elements, and combats climate change. Our coalition is advocating in the Michigan Legislature to get our state to allocate a slice of its surplus dollars toward the cause.
Resilient Homes Michigan coalition is made up of businesses, associations, nonprofits, grassroots groups and concerned individuals across the state.
