Interested in learning about emerging housing solutions in Northwest Michigan? Join Housing North for its 8th annual Northwest Michigan Housing Summit slated for October 27–28 at Great Wolf Lodge in Traverse City.

This year’s Northwest Michigan Housing Summit, now in its eighth year, returns with an in-person, two-day Traverse City event held at Great Wolf Lodge.

Hosted by Housing North from October 27–28, this is an annual opportunity for communities, businesses, developers, housing agencies, and others to learn about emerging housing solutions from national, state, and regional experts. In 2022, the summit will focus on advocacy and its impact on housing development and legislation.

This year’s event will also feature sessions and opportunities to talk to peers and experts, as well as panel discussions with speakers from statewide organizations who will provide updates on programs and resources available in Northwest Michigan. 

Keynote speaker Yusuf Dahl will share his inspirational story as a housing advocate, and his strategies for developing innovative and inclusive solutions to housing and affordability challenges within our communities. 

Lodging is available at Great Wolf Lodge. Registration begins at 8 a.m. on October 27 and the summit will officially start around 10 a.m. For more details, contact officials with Housing North at
