Northern Michigan Limited Dividend Housing Association, LLC (Northern Michigan LDHA) has been awarded a $196,000 grant by the Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) to build a modular home in Grayling. The grant is one of nine grants that have been awarded under the recently launched MSHDA Mod Pilot Program. The program’s intent is to use modular products in growing, critical need rural areas, thereby reducing the typical single-family home construction lead time, and making this housing available at affordable prices, and reduced delivery time.
Northern Michigan LDHA will build a 3-bedroom/1-bathroom modular ranch-style home plus garage, in partnership with General Housing Corporation of Bay City, with expected completion by the Fall of 2020. The home will be located at 603 Galen Street in Grayling and will be offered for sale to individuals or families that qualify under the program’s low to moderate income requirements (up to 120% of AMI, or area median income).
“Northern Michigan LDHA’s plan to build a modular home reinforces MSHDA’s vision to create quality, affordable housing opportunities for Michigan residents,” said Tonya Young, manager for MSHDA’s housing initiatives.
Northern Michigan LDHA, based in Grayling, is a provider of modular homes. Established in 2020, by co-owners Tom Steffen and Fred Fabian, Northern Michigan LDHA offers homes from General Housing Corporation, based in Bay City, Michigan, and Skyline Homes, a division of Skyline Champion, the nation’s largest, publicly-owned, factory-built housing company.
