The Michigan Historical Residential Foreclosure Data Project is a partnership between the Community Economic Development Association of Michigan (CEDAM), the Johnson Center for Philanthropy’s Community Research Institute (CRI) at Grand Valley State University, and Home Repair Services of Kent County (HRS). The project is made possible through a generous grant from the Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA). The purpose of the effort is to provide communities throughout the state of Michigan with meaningful, historical, residential foreclosure-related data that gives a clear picture of the development of the crisis and its impact over time at the state, county and sub-county level. Indicators and trends on residential foreclosures, delinquency, Real Estate Owned (REO) sales are provided for each county where available. The project also explores the trends between urban and rural counties in Michigan. The intention of this study is that communities will use these data to enhance local foreclosure response efforts.
We hosted an informational webinar in August to help navigate the website and learn more about the data involved. View the recording here.
