Housing and Revitalization Department
We ensure access to decent and affordable housing options in thriving neighborhoods across the city.
The Housing and Revitalization Department sustains and grows neighborhoods that are inclusive of quality affordable housing opportunities for all, and economic opportunity through management of federal housing, economic, and community development funding, steering local housing policy, and maintaining and creating mixed-income and mixed-use housing opportunities through transformational developments by leveraging public and private partnerships.
Mayor Mike Duggan and Detroit City Council Members Mary Waters, Latisha Johnson, and Angela Calloway have developed a 7-point, $203 million plan to develop affordable housing options for Detroiters to be funded in 2022.
The plan includes converting long-vacant apartment buildings and Land Bank homes into affordable rental housing, additional housing support resources, getting faster City approval for deeply affordable housing projects, down payment assistance to increase home ownership, help for landlords to bring their rental properties into compliance, rapid-placement for good-paying jobs and more.
