About the Board

We manage Grand Rapids' public housing. We also make sure our city's housing stock stays in good condition. Here's a quick look at what we do to meet our goals:

  • Purchase or acquire public or senior housing
  • Construct public or senior housing
  • Maintain public or senior housing
  • Improve or repair public or senior housing
  • Extend public or senior housing
  • Eliminate poor housing conditions
  • Hire and manage officers and employees

You can see that we do a lot. That's why we keep our own website. Check out www.grhousing.org to learn more about what we do.
