Michigan Public Housing Authorities

To apply for public housing or Section 8 vouchers, visit your local public housing agency. 
Many have long waiting lists, so you should apply at more than one housing agency.
When you see an "list-opening" announcement in your local paper or hear about one,
the required documents with you! There will be many people there to also apply and
you don't want to be left out because you are not prepared!

To apply for other low-income housing programs at privately owned apartments, visit
the management office of the apartment building.  Many complexes that are not normally
"low-income" DO set aside some apartments for those on limited incomes!

Michigan law allows low-income senior citizens to terminate rental agreements if they
qualify and are offered the opportunity for subsidized senior housing. Tenants who
qualify must have occupied their rental unit for more than 13 months and must provide
a 60-day written notice.The law also applies to tenants who can no longer live independently.
To be released from rental agreements under these circumstances, a notarized statement
from a physician is necessary.

NEW Rental Assistance housing programs! Project Permanency Plus (PP+) Permanent Housing Program, Project Permanency 3, and Focus on Family program.
The program provides on-going rental assistance to disabled individuals (18
years of age and older) and families that
rent units in the private rental housing market. To qualify, the individual or
family income must not exceed HUD limits, and MUST be HOMELESS and able to prove this! 
Once the NLSM accepts an individual or family into PP+, the individual or family
then finds its own rental unit.  To be eligible, a unit must be located within Wayne County (outside of the City of Detroit, Highland Park, Hamtramck,
Harper Woods or the five Grosse Pointes), meet HUD housing quality standards and pass a quality housing inspection, and have a rent amount that is within the limits/standards of the program.
Tenant rent is based upon income. 
Tenants typically pay 30-40% of the adjusted gross income for rent and
utilities depending on the cost to rent
the unit. NLSM pays the difference between the individual or family's portion of rent and the contract rent to the owner.


For Persons Diagnosed with HIV or AIDS
