Waiting List Update

The Grand Rapids Housing Commission (GRHC) is accepting new applicants to our agency-owned senior housing developments as well as to several developments for which we administer Section 8 Project-Based Vouchers (where a rental subsidy is attached to a specific housing development). Please note that there is a significant wait to rent at these developments; if you are in need of emergency housing, please contact United Way 2-1-1.

Apply for Housing

The GRHC is not currently accepting new applicants to our agency-owned family developments due to lengthy waiting lists. Families already on a waiting list will continue to be served. Update the mailing address on your application


Section 8 HCV Program Waiting List

We are not currently accepting new applicants to our Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher rental subsidy program due to a lengthy existing waiting list. We are currently serving applicants who applied to the program during December 2019; please note that it is not possible for the GRHC to offer waiting list “position numbers.”

Housing Choice Voucher Homeownership Program Orientation Meetings Scheduled

The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Homeownership program offers qualified HCV program participants an opportunity to use their monthly rental subsidy toward home mortgage payments rather than rent. The GRHC invites our HCV clients to learn more about the program by attending one of the orientation meetings that are scheduled throughout the year.
