Dowagiac Housing Initiative

For current residents:  The City has applied for the Neighborhood Enhancement Grant through the Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) for the second year in a row.   Our first grant of $50,000 was used to rehabilitate 10 different homes in town.  

For new residents:  The City has been accepted into the MSHDA MOD program which will allow us to build one spec modular home on the Parsonage & Spruce block.  Once built, the home will be open to the public to see how feasible and cost effective building a modular can be.

Did you know that the City will grant free City-owned residential lots and utilty connections for anyone wishing to build a new home in Dowagiac?
