Lansing is on the precipice of a turning point for our community. Recognized as a statewide leader in affordable housing, the Lansing Housing Commission (LHC) continues to fulfill its mission to provide quality, fair housing options in a compassionate, healthy, and safe manner.

Most recently, LHC approved the sale of 200+ dispersed housing units to create a better, safer model for our community. Section 18 is a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)-encouraged program to move current public housing (Section 9) — such as the scattered homes — to Section 8, which provides greater state and federal funding opportunities to communities such as Lansing. to improve.

This means that LHC can reinvest an estimated $12-15 million from the sale of dispersed homes to curb significant negative housing trends and meet future community needs. This wise investment means more families and individuals will enjoy one of the most basic necessities of life: a safe, affordable place to call home.
