Public Housing Applications
Applications will be taken at the housing authority on Mondays only from 9:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 to 4:00 p.m.  You must apply in person. Individuals that are disabled, elderly or have limited English proficiency may contact the housing authority for information on how to apply. Applicants will be considered by local preference first which means that you must be a Michigan City resident. Applicants will be placed on the list by time and date the application is received. Public Housing includes Boulevard Gardens, Lakeland Estates and Scattered Sites.  Applications for Boulevard Gardens (1 bedroom units for elderly or disabled individuals) will be accepted on Mondays and Wednesdays.

The Michigan City Housing Authority (MCHA) will close the housing applications waiting list beginning Tuesday, August 11, 2015 until further notice so that changes can be made to the application process.

No new applications will be accepted after August 10, 2015 until further notice.
