About the Michigan Housing Council


The Michigan Housing Council (MHC) is one of the oldest statewide associations of affordable housing professionals in the United States. The MHC is comprised of owners, developers, managers, general contractors and subcontractors, architects, engineers, attorneys, financial groups, insurers, accountants, market analysts, tax credit syndicators, and other consultants, non-profits and businesses involved with Michigans affordable housing industry.

Founded in 1989, the MHC is a non-profit organization dedicated to the development, financing, management, and rehabilitation of affordable housing in Michigan.
