PLYMOUTH HOUSING COMMISSION

1160 Sheridan

Plymouth, MI  48170

734-455-3670 or 800-898-2848

Welcome and thank you for visiting our web site.  At this time the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program Waiting List for the Plymouth Housing Commission is currently closed.  Please see the information below for more information.

                                   

The Plymouth Housing Commission is pleased to be opening its Housing Choice Voucher Section 8 Waiting List.  APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE AT THE HOUSING COMMISSION OFFICES!  ON THE DAY OF OPENING, THERE WILL BE A LINK ON THIS WEB SITE TO ACCESS AND COMPLETE THE APPLICATION ONLINE ONLY!

IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT THE APPLICATION WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE ON APRIL 30, 2015 THROUGH MAY 5, 2015.  After May 5, 2015 the Waiting List will be CLOSED and the application will no longer be available.  The application must be filled out completely and submitted online only.  No faxed, mailed, dropped off or incomplete applications will be accepted.  All applications must be completed and submitted online by the deadline in order to be considered.  Only 600 applications will be random selected.  This is NOT on a first come basis.  All applications submitted by the deadline will be eligible for random selection.  Only those applications randomly selected will be contacted.

Again, you will not be able to obtain an application any other way but through the link that will be provided on our website on April 30, 2015.  Do NOT come to the Housing Commission Office, we will not be able to assist you or provide you with an application.   

You will need to be prepared to provide the following information for all family members who will be part of the household:  full names, social security numbers, birth dates, and information on all income for all household members.  (If you currently live with a family member who will NOT be part of the household, please do NOT list them on the application!).  If you do not provide the above information on your application, you will not be able to submit. 

You will not be able to contact this office to verify if we have received your application or any other questions relating to the application or the application process.  Once you complete and submit the application you will be assigned a tracking number.  Write this number down for future use.  With this tracking number you will be able to make changes to your application during the open application period only.  After that the tracking number will allow you to check status only.  The tracking number is just a confirmation your application has been successfully submitted – it does not mean your application has been placed on the waiting list.  After the open application period has ended, any and all necessary changes to your application (i.e., address change, household members, etc.) must be submitted in writing to the address listed above.   









Mission Statement:

The mission of the Plymouth Housing Commission is to provide quality housing for eligible people in a professional, fiscally prudent manner and be a positive force in our community by working with others to assist these families with appropriate supportive services.

The Basics:

Plymouth Housing Commission manages two programs.  One is Subsidized Low Income Housing for Seniors, the other is the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program or commonly referred to as the Section 8 Program. 

The subsidized building is Tonquish Creek Manor.  It is a joint effort between the City of Plymouth and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) specifically designed for men and women ages 62 and over.   It is a 104-unit apartment building that provides senior citizens an independent lifestyle.  You must be 62 years of age at the time of submitting an application.  The 1 bedroom apartments are subsidized by HUD, therefore, the rent amount is based on individual income.  Tonquish Creek Manor is located a few blocks away from downtown Plymouth.   

 

The HCV program is a program that is governed by HUD to provide financial housing assistance to eligible low-income.  Family income must be within HUD guidelines for household size in order to qualify.  The rent for the apartment or house must be reasonable and must pass the HUD Housing Quality Standards.
