One of MCAH’s advocacy goals is to ensure all housing advocates have the resources they need to take action. Each month in this blog, you can find the updated links and information to do just that, all in under a few minutes.
Who Is The MICH?
The Michigan Interagency Council on Homelessness (MICH) serves in an advisory capacity for the executive branch on matters related to homeless response policy development, including the Campaign to End Homelessness. It is made up of representatives from state departments, the courts, and members of the general public who are striving to end homelessness in Michigan by collaborating to improve service delivery for people experiencing homelessness.
Where You Come In
In December of 2023, the MICH sent a letter to the Governor’s executive office with budget priorities that are being recommended for Fiscal Years 2024 and 2025 that align with priorities from the Campaign to End Homelessness’ 2023-2025 Action Plan. These investments will provide persons experiencing chronic homelessness with access to stable housing, provide more flexible funding for the creation of affordable housing, and seek to address racial disparities in the homeless response system.
As part of the Campaign to End Homelessness, MCAH and other partners strongly advocate for this needed funding. Please stay tuned for updates on specific ways you can join us to advocate for these priorities to be included in the state budget.
