Housing Assistance Programs

The Department of Community Development strives to improve the housing stock and increase access to decent, affordable housing through assistance programs supported by the Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG) funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and other funding sources.

The CDBG Program provides Housing Assistance Programs to income-eligible homeowners:

  1. Housing rehabilitation loans and emergency repair grants
  2. Home buyer assistance programs within select Portage neighborhoods. 

If you are interested in obtaining an application to participate in CDBG-funded Housing Assistance programs, please contact the Neighborhood Program Specialist Tom McCoy at (269) 324-9280 or via email.
