Every year, we look forward to connecting with the affordable housing community at our Annual Meeting & Training; sharing knowledge and experiences with one another to better the program. But given the concerns around COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person component of 2020. We will still be offering the training in a live virtual setting; however, we have cancelled all aspects of the Owner and Developer portion of the event.

We will continue to work with our State offices of MSHDA and USDA-RD to improve Michigan’s affordable housing and bridge the gap of communication between the programs and your needs. 

We will continue to update this page with more information as it becomes available. Registration for the online trainings will be available in July as originally planned. Please contact Katrina Greeley at kgreeley@MiRDC.org with any questions.
