Because we know that housing is a cornerstone of a stable life, and that the lack of truly affordable housing in our region is at critical levels, the Traverse City Housing Commission exists to provide, quality affordable housing options that enhance our residents’ opportunities for self-sufficiency and economic independence. We accomplish this mission by creating housing, partnering to create housing, or through the successful management of existing housing.
Our vision is to play a leadership role in expanding the range of housing option in the region including rentals and home ownership. Our TCHC housing inventory will be larger and will set a competitive standard for quality and affordability in a fiscally responsible way. We will be viewed as a champion of affordable housing. We will have strong partnerships in the private, public, and nonprofit housing sectors and our products and services will be recognized as successful models. The community will understand our role, value our work, and see the results of our efforts through an expanded housing inventor and program delivery system.
