Owning a home is almost everyone's dream. It's an investment. It's an asset. It's investing in yourself and your family. Mr. Ormsbee had that dream; to have a safe environment for his family. Hear his story.
It just makes more sense to invest in yourself than to pay a landlord. Attend Homebuyer Education at one of our 3 offices to learn the basics of the home buying process.

We are in need of licensed and insured General Contractors who are interested in bidding on various projects throughout the counties of Grand Traverse, Wexford, Missaukee, Emmet, Charlevoix, Benzie and Kalkaska.

If you or someone you know would be interested in bidding on home rehabilitation projects please contact the Home Repair Program to request an application or download one.
The Building Performance Unit is taking new applications for its Weatherization Assistance Program in Antrim, Benzie, Charlevoix, Grand Traverse and Leelanau Counties. The program provides assistance in improving the health, safety, efficiency and comfort of residences. It is funded by the Federal Department of Energy (DOE), which subsidizes these services for eligible low-income homeowners and renters. Clients who have an income that is less than 200 percent of the poverty guidelines are eligible for the program.
