Bailey Community Center Proposal

Capital Area Housing Partnership received funding that allows us to create a mixed use commercial and affordable senior housing project in the East Lansing Bailey Neighborhood.   Plans call for 25 (twenty-five) 1 and 2 bedroom senior apartments with low traffic commercial space on the first floor.

We expect to start construction July 2016 with completion estimated for Winter 2017.

PK Housing & Management will manage the housing application process.  Call them at 517-347-9662 for more information.

Welcome to the Capital Area Housing Partnership

Capital Housing Partnership (CAHP) is a nonprofit Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO) that believes in strong neighborhoods, housing choice and vibrant communities. We recognize each community is unique, with many populations calling it home. We strive to create a balance between owner occupied and rental housing, especially in vintage neighborhoods designed for single family homes. We believe strong partnerships between local government, neighbors, businesses and organizations like ours are best able to achieve these results.

Our strategies for achieving these goals include building a foundation of financial and home buyer knowledge, providing down payment assistance programs and/or creating exceptional, affordable housing stock for our clients. Programs designed to keep people in their current homes include foreclosure intervention and homeowner renovation programs.

Our partner, Franklin Street Community Housing Corporation, a Lansing based non-profit organization, has a long history of neighborhood revitalization and “Building Capital” in the form of financial education programs.  To learn more about Franklin Street or to sign up for one of our classes, please visit their website at .


Capital Area Housing Partnership, working in partnership with the community, promotes strong, diverse neighborhoods, affordable housing and homeownership and greater financial independence in mid-Michigan.
