The Houghton Housing Commission owns and manages thirty single family homes. Conveniently located throughout the City of Houghton and near schools, shopping, dining, and entertainment. There are 2-, 3- and 4-bedroom homes that are perfect for families. The Houghton Housing Commission maintains a waiting list of applicants that are contacted as soon as openings occur. 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.
The rent is different for every resident. Each resident can choose either to pay a flat rental amount established for the individual bedroom size of the apartment, or 30% of their "Adjusted" income.
"Adjusted" income is the amount of annual income an individual has after deducting $400 for each individual over the age of 62, and medical/disabled expenses for qualified individuals.
