Learn about regulatory and programmatic tools to make affordable housing happen in your community; how missing middle housing is a key solution to keep talent and families in Michigan; and how other states are advancing best planning practices to implement housing solutions.  We'll showcase inspirational national speakers and state and local planning and housing experts to provide the tools and resources to help you create prosperous, safe, healthy, and equitable places.
