Low Income Housing Help River Rouge MI

The River Rouge Housing Commission has been providing low income housing help to the River Rouge community since 1948. Our organization is comprised of 300 units; the Hyacinth Court II Community Center located at 460 ½ Lenoir Ct, River Rouge, MI 48218, and the main office, which is located at 180 Visger Rd, River Rouge, MI 48218.

The 300 units are divided into four project areas:

  • Project 1 is named Seneca Terraces and was constructed in 1952 (48 units located on Polk St and Beechwood).
  • Project 2 is named Iroquois Terraces and was also constructed in 1952 (52 units located on Goodell St).
  • Project 3 is named Seneca and Iroquois Terraces and was constructed in 1958 (100 units located on Polk, Beechwood, and Goodell streets).
  • Project 4 is named Scattered Sites and was constructed in 1963 (100 units located in Superior Ct, Lenoir Ct, Kleinow St, Polk S, and Goodell St.

In addition to our 300 public housing units, we also administer 249 Section 8 vouchers from our Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program. The Section 8 program first came into existence in River Rouge in 1977 under the Section 8 Existing Housing Program. Our Section 8 office is housed in our Hyacinth Court II Community Center, and the current Section 8 Coordinator is named Nakia Johnson.

The RRHC is funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. The mission of the organization is to provide low-income families with affordable and safe housing solutions. All of our units are subsidized based on the participant’s income.
