Grand Rapids Housing Commission Rental Assistance Center

The Grand Rapids Housing Commission is partnering with the City of Grand Rapids to offer a Rental Assistance Center that certifies low-income households as “rental ready” and also provides a clearinghouse for rental property owners seeking qualified tenants. The center serves Grand Rapids residents who earn 80 percent or less of the Area Median Income (currently $55,900 for a family of four) and who have had a rental housing application denied by a landlord.

This free service helps prospective renters identify and overcome credit problems, poor landlord references and other issues that can impede their ability to find housing.

Click Rental Assistance Center for more information and a link to the Rental Readiness Program’s easy-to-complete online application form.

The Rental Assistance Center is funded by
the City of Grand Rapids.
