Housing & Human




Our approach to housing and human services assignments tends to mirror the manner in which we take on projects in other fields. Clients expect us to cut through hyperbole and emotion in order to arrive at conclusions based upon the reality of the situation and clearly supportable by the facts.

Assignments in the housing field range from pure market studies for developers to fair housing practices analyzes for communities. We utilize a wide variety of federal and state data sources, supplemented by information for the community/region/neighborhood being studied. Examples of past projects we have been involved in include:

  • Downtown upscale condominium market analysis.
  • Residential tax abatement opportunities, costs,
    and trade-offs.
  • Changes in land values created by past major developments.
  • Fair Housing Analysis.
  • In-fill housing opportunity identification.
  • Low income housing loan programs.
  • Senior citizens housing programs.

In the 21 st Century, the merging of effectiveness and efficiency will be an imperative for Human Services. Emphasis will be placed upon concepts such as cost containment, privatization, automation, service integration, and program evaluation. Michigan Consultants has proven experience in each of these domains, and with a variety of program areas.

  • Management analyses of non-profit organizations.
  • ADA Steering Committee Training Analysis.
  • Analysis of various public transportation related programs for seniors and people with disabilities.
  • Evaluation of regulatory opportunities in the Life Services program.
  • Analysis of the Michigan Substance Abuse Services Coordination and Evaluation System.
  • Diversity opportunity analysis for a university research institute.
  • Development of Systems Requirements Definitions documents and identification of inter-program potential for the Michigan Opportunity System.
