Tri-County Invites Community Stakeholders to First Regional Housing Partnership Summit

Updated: Jul 6, 2023

In 2022, the Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) published Michigan’s first Statewide Housing Plan and established the Michigan Statewide Housing Partnership, which called for the creation of regional housing consortiums. MSHDA has since identified 15 Regional Housing Partnerships (RHPs) tasked with developing action plans tailored to each region that support implementation of the plan.

The Tri-County Regional Planning Commission (Tri-County), in partnership with the Capital Area Housing Partnership (CAHP), will lead the facilitation of this RHP effort for the tri-county region, serving Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham counties. This RHP will bring stakeholders from across the region together to develop a five-year housing action plan that addresses local and regional housing needs, builds on the region’s existing networks and housing ecosystem, and aligns with the priorities, goals, and strategies identified in the Statewide Housing Plan.

Tri-County and CAHP are hosting the first of two RHP summits on Thursday, July 20th from 8:30 a.m. to noon at The James B. Henry Center for Executive Development. With support from Michigan State University Extension and MSHDA, this meeting will build on the housing efforts already occurring in the region and identify opportunities for partners across the housing ecosystem to work together to address housing priorities in the tri-county area.

Local governments, nonprofits, developers, businesses, local health departments, grassroots organizations, philanthropic organizations, economic and workforce development catalysts, transportation agencies, and other partners are invited to join and share input to help the community create a path for action.

Registration is required; RSVP by July 14th at Space is limited and entry will be available on a first come, first served basis. Contact for assistance with registration or special accommodations; requests for interpretation and assistance for persons with disabilities should be made at least five business days in advance of the meeting date.

This work builds off Tri-County's recently completed Regional Housing Assessment, HousingDrives, which is pending publication.
