Renter Forum, January 17, 5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.

On Thursday, January 17 from 5:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m at the Foster Community Center (Room 213), Ingham County renters will come together to discuss new ways of creating healthy, safe, stable, affordable rental housing in our area. 

Come and voice your concerns and opinions, and learn about healthy homes programs and services, housing laws and renters’ rights. 

This free event includes dinner for participants, and door-prize drawings for Meijer gift cards. Activities for children will also be provided upon request. 

This discussion is a critical step in a county-wide effort to improve availability of healthy, safe, stable affordable homes. This discussion is especially suited for low-to-moderate income* renters of single-family homes (an individual, freestanding, unattached dwelling unit, typically built on a lot larger than the structure itself, resulting in an area surrounding the house, known as a yard) and those who rent an apartment unit in a house with fewer than ten total units.  

*Monthly income at or under:

$1,700 (family of 1)     $2,300 (2)      $2,900 (3)    $3,500 (4)      $4,100 (5)    $4,700  (6)    
$5,300  (7)     $5,900 (8)
