LANSING, Mich. – Highlighting its response to the great demand for quality affordable housing, the Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) Board approved the blueprint for how the state will administer the next funding round under the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program.
After months of public comment and partner collaboration, the 2021 Qualified Allocation Plan strategy aligns with MSHDA's mission of partnering to provide quality housing that is affordable. It also positions the state to better address current market conditions in urban and rural areas which suffer from a lack of affordable rental housing. Under the plan, MSHDA will hold the next LIHTC funding round on February 1, 2021 to allocate 100% of the 2021 LIHTC ceiling representing approximately $250 million of investment.

"The changes incorporated into this Qualified Allocation Plan take into account the current social and economic climate and should help bring more affordable housing to the areas of Michigan where it's needed," said Susan Corbin, MSHDA Board chair and acting director of the Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity. "By holding a large funding round early in the year, we will help bring much-needed, quality low-income housing developments online sooner."
The board also approved the use of up to $3 million in Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) administrative fees to help incentivize landlords to open more units to HCV tenants and contracted housing agents to get voucher holders into homes faster. Setting aside funds for damage claims also will allow HCV landlords to recoup up to $3,000 to repair damaged units.
"Investing in best practices like this will help us address our strategic focus area of reducing homelessness," said MSHDA Acting Executive Director Gary Heidel. "By allocating additional resources, MSHDA can better assist homeless and extremely low-income families by shortening the search time for locating eligible housing. It also encourages new landlords to make their rental units available to voucher holders and encourages current landlords to continue to participate in the program."

The issuance and sale of a combination of tax-exempt and taxable single-family mortgage revenue bonds totaling about $282 million also met board approval. This action is expected to fund approximately 2,500 single-family mortgage loans, making homeownership more attainable for individuals and families in Michigan.
The Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA), established in 1966, provides financial and technical assistance through public and private partnerships to create and preserve safe and decent affordable housing, engage in community economic development activities, develop vibrant cities, towns and villages, and address homeless issues.
