Welcome and thank you for visiting our website.  At this time the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program Waiting List for the Plymouth Housing Commission will be opening April 30th, 2021.  Please refer to the information below for more information:

The Plymouth Housing Commission is pleased to be opening its Housing Choice Voucher Section 8 Waiting List.  APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE AT THE HOUSING COMMISSION OFFICES!  APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE UNTIL THE DAY OF OPENING, THERE WILL BE A LINK ON THIS WEB SITE TO ACCESS AND COMPLETE THE APPLICATION ONLINE ONLY!

IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT THE APPLICATION WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE ON APRIL 30th, 2021 THROUGH MAY 4th, 2021.  After May 4th, 2021, the Waiting List will be CLOSED and the application will no longer be available.  The application must be filled out completely and submitted online only.  No duplicate, faxed, mailed, dropped off or incomplete applications will be accepted.  All applications must be completed and submitted online by the deadline in order to be considered.  Only 1,250 applications will be randomly selected.  This is NOT on a first come basis.  All applications submitted by the deadline will be eligible for random selection.  Only those applications randomly selected will be contacted by mail or email.

Again, you will not be able to obtain an application any other way but through the link that will be provided on our website starting April 30th, 2021 through May 4th, 2021.  DO NOT come to the Housing Commission Office, we will not be able to assist you or provide you with an application.    

You will need to be prepared to provide the following information for all family members who will be part of the household:  full names, social security numbers, birth dates, and information on all income for all household members.  (If you currently live with a family member who will NOT be part of the household if you receive a voucher, please do NOT list them on the application!).  If you do not provide the above information on your application, you will not be able to submit.    Entering “homeless” as a mailing address may result in a lost opportunity to be placed on the Waiting List.  Using a family member or friend or other contact where the mailing address will be stable is acceptable as all attempts made to contact an applicant are done by mail or email.  If you cannot be reached by mail or email, you will be removed from the waiting list.  Please proofread your information before submitting.  If you enter the information incorrectly, mailings will be sent out incorrectly and may result in a lost opportunity to be placed on the waiting list.

New:  If you are randomly selected to be placed on the PHC Waiting List, the preferred method of correspondence will be electronically which requires you to have access to a valid active email address/account.  Please be prepared provide a valid email address and please take the time to verify accuracy of your information.  If we cannot reach you, you may lose an opportunity to be placed on the waiting list. If you are randomly selected you will be notified with a form requesting further information.  You will need a valid active email account and Adobe Reader.  Adobe Reader is a free app from the Adobe.com or Playstore site. DO NOT PAY for any application or software.  Make sure you include your email address when applying online during the open enrollment.

You will not be able to contact this office to verify if we have received your application or any other questions relating to the application or the application process.  Once you complete and submit the application you will be assigned a tracking number.  Write this number down for future use.  With this tracking number you will be able to make changes to your application during the open application period only.  After that, the tracking number will allow you to check status only.  The tracking number is just a confirmation that your application has been successfully submitted – it does not mean your application has been placed on the waiting list.  After the open application period has ended, all necessary changes to your application (i.e., address change, household members, etc.) must be submitted in writing to Plymouth Housing Commission, 1160 Sheridan Street, Plymouth, MI 48170 or emailed to hcvprogram@plymouthhousing.net

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT IF YOU APPLY FOR THE PLYMOUTH HOUSING COMMISSION HOUSING CHOICE VOUCHER PROGRAM AND ARE RANDOMLY SELECTED AND DO NOT LIVE IN OUR JURISDICTION, YOU MUST MOVE TO OUR JURISDICTION BEFORE THE VOUCHER CAN BE PORTED TO ANOTHER JURISIDICTION.

Mission Statement:

The mission of the Plymouth Housing Commission is to provide quality housing for eligible people in a professional, fiscally prudent manner and to be a positive force in our community by working with others to assist these families with appropriate supportive services.

The Basics:

Plymouth Housing Commission manages two programs.  One is Subsidized Low Income Housing for Seniors, the other is the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program or commonly referred to as the Section 8 Program.

The subsidized building is Tonquish Creek Manor.  It is a joint effort between the City of Plymouth and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) specifically designed for men and women ages 62 and over.   It is a 104-unit apartment building that provides senior citizens an independent lifestyle.  You must be 62 years of age at the time of submitting an application.  The 1 bedroom apartments are subsidized by HUD, therefore, the rent amount is based on individual income.  Tonquish Creek Manor is located a few blocks away from downtown Plymouth.  The Waiting List for Tonquish Creek Manor is open.  If you would like to apply, please contact the Plymouth Housing Commission at 734-455-3670 and request an application.
