Announcing Up to $20 Million in Funding for the
CDBG Housing Improving Local Livability (CHILL) Program
Letters of Intent Due
Monday, September 25, 2023

The Neighborhood Housing Initiatives Division (NHID) of the Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) is pleased to announce the availability of $20 million in funding through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program for the creation of housing activities that benefit low- and moderate-income households.  MSHDA’s CDBG Housing Improving Local Livability (CHILL) program provides annual grants to non-entitlement units of general local government—cities, towns, townships, villages, or counties not currently receiving a direct allocation of CDBG funds from HUD. Two activity types are eligible for funding: homeowner rehabilitation, to preserve affordable housing units; and demolition/reconstruction/resale, to remove blight and create single-family housing for resale to income eligible homebuyers.

MSHDA is currently accepting Letters of Intent (LOI) from eligible Units of General Local Government (UGLG) for proposals that meet the objectives of the CHILL program.  The letters will be used to establish a pool of eligible applicants, who will then be asked to complete a full application.  Application approval and awards will be made via a competitive process. To be considered for funding, please submit a LOI by completing the forms and uploading requested documents located here no later than 11:59 p.m. Monday, September 25, 2023.
