We go beyond "Housing."

We want you to feel at home.

The Ferndale Housing Commission ensures high quality, affordable housing for all Ferndale residents. We want our residents to feel secure and welcome within a diverse and inclusive community that is caring, active, and one in which everybody has a place. We operate two types of housing programs: low-income public housing within the City of Ferndale, and rental assistance (Section 8) with vouchers that can be used with throughout Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb Counties.


Our waiting lists are currently closed. Other options include:

Check out Community Housing Network, a non-profit organization that assists people with housing.
They also have a housing hotline: (248) 269-1335

Use the State’s MSHDA housing locator to search for housing by geography, affordability and other factors.
