Houghton Housing Commission Family Houses
The Houghton Housing Commission owns and manages thirty family homes. The houses vary in size from two to four bedroom styles ideally located throughout the City of Houghton. The Houghton Housing Commission will maintain a waiting list of applicants if there are no current homes available. The applicants are contacted as soon as opening occurs. In order to be eligible for low-income housing, one must be at least 18 years of age, qualify as a family, and meet the established income limits. All applicants are screened through criminal background and credit checks.

Rent Calculations

"Adjusted" income is the amount of annual income an individual has after deducting $480 for each minor child and medical/disabled expenses for qualified individuals.
