Mission Statement

Capital Area Housing Partnership develops strong, diverse neighborhoods with a focus on affordable housing, homeownership and financial security in mid-Michigan

About Us

  • Capital Area Housing Partnership (CAHP) is a nonprofit Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO).

  • We recognize each community is unique, with many populations calling it home. We strive to create a balance between owner occupied and rental housing, especially in vintage neighborhoods designed for single family homes.

  • We believe strong partnerships between local government, neighbors, businesses and organizations like ours are best able to achieve these results.

  • Our strategies for achieving these goals include building a foundation of financial and home buyer knowledge, providing down payment assistance programs and/or creating exceptional, affordable housing stock for our clients.

  • Programs designed to keep people in their current homes include foreclosure intervention and homeowner renovation programs. (seniors residing in community)

  • We are certified by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) and the National Industry Standards for Homeownership Education and Counseling (NISHEC) for housing counseling, credit counseling, financial literacy training and foreclosure prevention.
