CAHP Homes Built in East Lansing



Capital Area Housing Partnership develops strong, diverse neighborhoods with a focus on affordable housing, homeownership opportunities, and financial security for our neighbors throughout mid-Michigan. 


Capital Area Housing Partnership is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, a Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO), and your HUD-approved local Housing Counseling Agency. 

We are headquartered at the Neighborhood Empowerment Center on the former Michigan School for the Blind campus in Lansing, Michigan.  


Capital Area Housing Partnership is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with over 30 years of experience leading neighborhood revitalization efforts while creating and preserving affordable housing options with supportive services for residents throughout mid-Michigan.

Through our comprehensive approach, we are a one-stop hub serving over 1,500 of our neighbors annually by:

  • Filling missing gaps in core neighborhoods by building attainable homeownership opportunities paired with down payment assistance for first-time homebuyers.


  • Developing and sustaining critical affordable rental homes for vulnerable populations experiencing housing instability.


  • Improving our region's housing stock by making homes safer and more accessible and enhancing energy efficiency.


  • Delivering housing and financial counseling services as the region's HUD-approved housing counseling agency.


  • Providing emergency assistance to prevent homelessness and unsafe living conditions.


  • Engaging people and communities to maintain their homes and neighborhoods with our tools and resources.


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 are best able to achieve these results.


Our strategies for achieving these goals include building a foundation of financial and homeownership knowledge, providing down payment assistance and creating exceptional, affordable housing stock for mid-Michigan residents.
