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.
