LANSING, June 24, 2020 - The Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) awarded $2.1 million in Neighborhood Enhancement Program (NEP) grants to 55 local governments and nonprofit groups across Michigan. NEP is designed to launch improvement projects directly tied to enhancing and stabilizing communities. Projects can focus on neighborhood public amenity enhancements, improve residents' quality of life, or help communities recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

"These grants will allow local groups across the state help their communities with specific needs that improve the quality of life for residents. MSHDA supports innovative, highly-visible and meaningful housing-focused ideas to improve and stabilize neighborhoods," said Gary Heidel, acting executive director of MSHDA.

During its fifth round of funding, MSHDA allocated $1 million to rural communities, designated as having 5,000 or fewer residents. To become a grantee, organizations had to show a level of need and demonstrate that the proposed project will make a noticeable difference within the community. Due to COVID-19, the project completion deadline for funded projects has been extended to September 2021.

The goal of this funding is to help – and eventually showcase – model Michigan neighborhoods where residents are engaged and facilitating change.
