Housing is a right and everyone deserves safe, quality, affordable housing, a cornerstone of thriving communities! The foundation for the BMCC is Michigan’s first Statewide Housing Plan and in addressing the longstanding housing inequities that have been amplified by the global pandemic. The intersections to housing are vast so our target audience is broad – from community advocates to officials, environmental justice advocates to businesses, those who serve vulnerable and special populations, developers, construction industry, architects, preservationists, and those across the housing continuum.
