Second Floor Apartment Program
The Second Floor Apartment Program offered by the City of Detroit Housing and Revitalization Department (HRD) supports property owners seeking to renovate vacant second floor apartment space into occupied rental units with rents at or below 60% of Area Median Income (AMI). Grants provide a financial incentive to help building owners better utilize their vacant or underperforming space. With more second floor apartments, residents have more varied and viable living options, property owners have diversified income, and business corridors have increased residential customer base.
The funding allocated by HRD is part of the $203 million housing plan announced by Mayor Mike Duggan and City Council members as part of an effort to increase the number of affordable rental housing units in the city.
