Governor Gretchen Whitmer celebrated the opening of Zone 32, a new housing development in Kalamazoo’s Northside neighborhood. The development includes 12 new homes and a childcare center in partnership with the YMCA of Greater Kalamazoo.

Governor Whitmer emphasized the importance of affordable housing and the state’s commitment to addressing housing needs by making the largest investment in housing in Michigan’s history.

The project in Kalamazoo is part of this effort to expand housing options and childcare services, aiming to lower costs and enhance access for all residents.

Zone 32 received funding through the Missing Middle Housing Program, managed by the Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA).

The program awarded a grant of $920,178, contributing to a total construction cost of approximately $4.7 million. This initiative aims to bridge gaps and support projects like Zone 32, aligning with the state’s goal of building thousands of new homes to address housing challenges.

Governor Whitmer’s administration remains dedicated to revitalizing communities and increasing housing availability. Michigan’s first statewide housing plan, introduced in 2022, set a target of 75,000 housing units over five years.

Since Governor Whitmer took office, the state has constructed or rehabilitated 34,000 housing units, creating 20,000 construction jobs. As part of the historic housing investment, Michigan will allocate nearly $1.4 billion to build or renovate almost 10,000 homes, marking a significant increase from previous years.

This investment covers various housing types, including single-family homes, apartments, and mixed-use buildings, to expand the housing supply and reduce costs. Additionally, this initiative will generate thousands of well-paying jobs across various skilled trades, contributing to economic growth and prosperity in Michigan.
