Lansing Housing Commission is a federally funded Public Housing Agency which provides housing opportunities for low-income families. Prior to admission, LHC verifies household income, family composition and other circumstances, including criminal, landlord and financial history, for all adults in the household. Households deemed both eligible and suitable for admission will be offered an opportunity to lease a unit. Households who lease LHC public housing units have the option of paying either an income based rent (based on a family’s ability to pay (usually 30% of a family’s monthly adjusted income), regardless of the size of the leased unit) or a flat rent (based on the size of the leased unit).
