I am looking for housing

There is a severe lack of affordable rental housing in Detroit and much of what policymakers refer to as "affordable" is not affordable to most Detroit residents.

The HUD Resource Locator allows you to search for public housing authorities and other services and resources near you.

These tools also allow you to explore potentially affordable housing options across Detroit and southeast Michigan:

Websites like Zillow.com, Apartments.com and Craigslist.org can also be used to search for housing– however, rental scams are common:

  • This page from Craigslist explains how to recognize and avoid scams, who to notify about any scam attempts, and provides examples of common scams used on their site.

  • Zillow and Apartments.com also offer tips for how to recognize and avoid rental scams as well as examples of common scams used on their websites.
