Our Mission

The Grand Rapids Housing Commission provides housing assistance and affordable housing opportunities to lower-income families, the disabled and senior citizens in a manner that is fiscally sound and in ways that support families, neighborhoods and economic self-sufficiency.

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. During the 47 years since the founding of our agency, the GRHC has grown from 228 units of Public Housing to more than 3,900 housing units provided through a wide array of housing programs.

Funded primarily through the United States 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.

Our governing board typically meets the third Tuesday evening of each month at the Campau Commons Community Center located at 821 South Division Avenue (Division at Franlkin) in Grand Rapids. Click Housing Commission Meetings to view the complete meeting schedule for the year.
