About Inkster Housing Commission The Inkster Housing Redevelopment Commission (IHRC) was created in 1950 by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Initially, the IHRC was a municipal department of the city of Inkster, a small, urban, blue-collar community 20 miles from Detroit. In 2004, IHRC became an independent, self-sustaining, HUD-funded nonprofit agency, following a change in state law that made all housing authorities independent of municipalities.
Inkster Housing Commission (IHC) is governed by a five-member Board of Commissioners appointed by the Mayor of Inkster, Michigan, to 5-year staggered terms. IHS mission is to be the premier affordable housing provider locally, regionally, and nationally that fosters diverse and vibrant communities including housing, education, and economic growth. IHC is devoted to enriching lives by building inclusive communities and empowering families for long-term economic success.
IHC administers two HUD programs, Public Housing, and the Section 8 Housing Voucher Choice Program (HCVP). IHC’s programs provide decent and safe rental housing for eligible low-income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities. The HCVP Program provides rental assistance/subsidies and 751 Section 8 Vouchers for eligible families living in private housing. IHC provides housing and/or housing assistance to nearly 3,000 persons of whom approximately 1,500 are children under the age of 18.
By promoting personal, economic, and social upward mobility, our residents are encouraged to transition from subsidized to unsubsidized housing in the private sector.
