Who We Are

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. Over the years the GRHC has grown from 228 units of Public Housing to more than 4,200 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.
