Grand Rapids Housing Commission

Affordable Housing for West Michigan

The Grand Rapids Housing Commission (GRHC) provides housing assistance to low-income residents of Grand Rapids, Michigan. We currently serve more than 3,900 West Michigan families.

The GRHC operates seven low-income housing developments, including family housing and apartments for seniors and disabled persons. We also administer federal Section 8 rental subsidy programs, home ownership programs and a transitional housing program.

Over the years the GRHC has expanded our role in the community, partnering with community organizations and individuals to advocate for positive change in local social welfare policy and to offer supportive services families can use to achieve self-sufficiency and a stronger financial future.

Waiting List Update, 7/24/14

The GRHC has exhausted the Section 8 waiting list established in 2010. Later this summer, we will start contacting applicants who applied during May 2014.

Applicants will be contacted by U.S. Mail at the address on their application, so it is very important that any change of address be reported—this can be accomplished by completing and submitting our online Application Update Form.

We are not currently accepting new applicants to our Section 8 Program. The waiting lists for our family housing, retirement housing and Project-Based Program are open and accepting new applicants.
