About this grant

Encouraged by the successful Rosewood Development Project, the Shelter of Flint is in the process of developing additional low-income housing projects in the city of Flint. Rosewood is a 200-acre, multifamily planned unit development consisting of 120 rental units with supportive services that help provide stable, affordable and quality housing for low-income area families, particularly clientele of the Shelter.Funding will provide the Shelter with property for the creation of a housing development consisting of 32-40 multifamily townhouse-style rental units. The Shelter will use the same funding mechanism used for the Rosewood Development Project, the Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) Low-Income Housing Tax Credit, which targets incomes from the high-end to the low-end of Flint’s median income for a family of four.To date, activities have included conducting a market study, an update of the environmental survey, legal consultation, readiness to proceed requirements, initial architectural design work, and bids from two tax credit syndicators.
