About Us

The Cheboygan Housing Commission is a Public Housing Authority (PHA). The PHA offers two federally funded rental assistance programs. Rent is based on all income of all adults living in the home. As a service to its residents, City of Cheboygan ordinance allows for the PHA’s continued operation in cooperation agreement with the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).


Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide safe, decent and sanitary housing conditions for very low-income families and to manage resources efficiently. The PHA is to promote social determinants of health and support personal, economic and social upward mobility to provide families the opportunity to make the transition from subsidized to non-subsidized housing.

The Housing Authority continues to work on public housing redevelopment plans. Anyone interested in serving as a resident advisor should contact the management office or email me at Catherine.schulz@cheboyganhousing.org. A resident board is important to make sure that the housing commission is making plans that will meet your housing needs. A public housing resident meeting is required before our application to reposition and redevelop is submitted to HUD; the tenant meeting meetings were announced December 1, held December 8, and all tenants received a project description February 1.

HOUSING ADVOCACY MEETINGS are the third Wednesday of each month at 4pm at Cheboygan Public Library. These are informal meetings, open to the public. Anyone interested in homeless services, rent assistance, and housing are encouraged to participate.
