Welcome to The Flint Housing Commission


Our Profile and History:

A five member Board of Commissioners governs The Flint Housing Commission, created in 1964. The Board members, appointed by the Mayor of the City of Flint, establish the overall policy in matters concerning the operation of the Housing Commission.

 The Executive Director, appointed by the Board of Commissioners, is the Chief Executive Officer and is responsible for coordinating and implementing the policies established by the Board of Commissioners.

Since its' inception, the Housing Commission has grown into a medium sized Public Housing agency (PHA) that owns 1,248 units of Low Income Public Housing. The programs of the FHC are funded through the rental income of residents, as well as, operating subsidy from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). HUD's funding, and thus our own, is dependent on annual appropriations through Congress.

Also, grants are received annually for the Renovation and Modernization of these units. The public housing program is not limited to the rental and maintenance of physical facilities, but has also operated programs designed to resolve many of the social and economic problems experienced by low-income families.

The Housing Commission also provides rental assistance for approximately 700 families through the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program. This mechanism, with involvement from the private sector, has the ability of expanding the housing choices available to low-income families.

It is the FHC's goal to assist in every way possible to improve the living conditions of the people choosing to reside with us.
