$3.2M in Grants to Help People in Michigan Find, Keep Homes
Earlier this month CAHP hosted the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) at the newly renovated Bailey Center in East Lansing for the announcement of more than $3.2 million in grants to help people in Michigan find housing, make better informed choices about housing and keep their homes.

These funds have enabled CAHP to offer homeownership counseling services covering a series of important money management strategies. CAHP provides homebuyer education, pre-purchase planning, record keeping, savings, budgeting, building your credit, identify theft protections and long-term planning.
