**Important** If you have previously applied for a housing lottery or the MIHU program, you must complete a separate application for the housing lottery at the Housing Fair on April 12, 2014. You are not automatically included in this drawing. Likewise, if you apply for the Housing Fair lottery, you will not be included in future MIHU lotteries unless you complete a separate application for the MIHU program during an open enrollment period.
Enrollment periods for the MIHU homeownership program are open four times per year – January, April, July and October. MIHU rentals are available year round on a first come, first serve basis. MIHUs are sold or rented at affordable prices and rents set by the Department of Housing and Community Development. Any person or family can apply to buy or rent an MIHU provided their household income does not exceed the maximums listed on the application. Click here for more information.
