You might if you live in one of the following counties,

  • Genesee County
  • Saginaw County
  • Wayne County
  • Berrien County
  • Roscommon County
  • Mecosta County

The list has changed a little since 2023. Although Wayne County is listed above, Detroit is not on the list of Michigan's poorest cities this year. Another city off the list this year is Ecorse, Michigan.

Other than that, the list is pretty much the same, with a little restructuring. Last year, Highland Park took the number one spot for the poorest Michigan city. This year Highland Park comes in at number three.

To determine the poorest Michigan cities 2024 Road Snacks used what is referred to as Saturday Night Science. To keep current, the site updates its information with annual Census results, FBI stats, and government data.

Median household income, poverty rate, and number of people in poverty were all a part of the above findings.

These results in no way shape or form are targeted at the good people who live in these Michigan cities, and the unique things that make each of these cities great.

Every Michigan city has something special to offer, and the 10 poorest cities in Michigan are no different.

For example - Flint, Michigan is on the list of poorest cities and was recently named the most affordable city in the United States.
