Supporting housing creation in Newaygo County
Like many areas of the country, Newaygo County is experiencing a housing shortage. In fact, the latest data indicates a need for 300-400 additional housing units.
In 2023, Newaygo County commissioners approved $1 million to help create the Newaygo County Housing Partnership Fund at the Community Foundation. Our Board of Trustees earmarked an additional $500,000. Grants from this fund will support local housing creation.
The first grants were awarded in 2023 to a trio of projects that will add an anticipated 13 housing units in the Hesperia and White Cloud areas. Read more here.
A second round of housing grants will be open for applications on November 15, with proposals due on January.
