Housing Summit 2017


Earlier this year, the HBA of Michigan hosted eight housing summits across the state to hear directly about the challenges facing its members.  What we heard was the need to sound an important alarm for local community leaders and economic developers, along with ideas and important input on what could be done to reverse the growing housing shortage across the state.  Our complete report can be found below, along with various news stories that accompanied its release.
