All five houses are currently under contract, but keep an eye out for more houses soon!

The Big Rapids Housing Commission strives to bring affordable housing to Big Rapids. In December 2022, the Big Rapids Housing Commission was awarded a Missing Middle Housing Program grant from the Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) in the amount of $362,500. Now, as of December 2023, MSHDA has increased our grant to $475,000!  These funds will be used to help with construction costs of the first five new homes on Mechanic Street. Visit the Mechanic Street website for further details on customizing your own home or purchasing a vacant lot!  You may also reach out to Linda Miller at (231) 796-8689 or
