2022 Year in Review

2023 Year in Review

Dear Stakeholders, 

 

With 2023 in the books, it’s instructive to reflect on how far we’ve come. The 2023 fiscal year resulted in the strongest revenue and strongest jump in net position MCC has seen in recent history. Whether it's strong improvement from new development properties coming online, a fifth consecutive NMTC award, or new capital flowing into our CDFI for lending, the organization is performing incredibly well. That said, it’s important to look at the greater context of our operating environment. Michigan has a desperate need for affordable and workforce housing in nearly every market in the state. Housing Cost Burden as well as the ALICE population size are at an all-time high. Housing production and sales volume remain low by historical standards. These conditions, combined with tightening credit markets and pressure from CRE on our local and regional bank partners have created a perfect storm. High demand for services from CDFI’s and CDC’s as well as very limited resources will absolutely have impacts on the communities we serve. 

 

It’s important to keep the individuals, families, and communities we serve at the center of our work. We are here for them and when we advocate for MCC, we are advocating for them and for Michigan. 

 

I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks on behalf of our board and staff to all our stakeholders and supporters who make this important work possible. We take our work as stewards of resources very seriously and look forward to continuing to create a waterfall of positive impacts across the State.
