About the Grand Rapids Housing Commission
The Grand Rapids Housing Commission (GRHC) was established by the Grand Rapids City Commission in 1966 to provide affordable housing for low-income residents and to eliminate substandard housing conditions. Funded primarily through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the GRHC is independently administered and is governed by a five-member board appointed by the City Manager and approved by the City Commission.
The GRHC currently provides 4,050 units of affordable housing to West Michigan families through a diverse portfolio of housing programs. Additionally, the GRHC's development activities are contributing to the revitalization of several Grand Rapids neighborhoods.
