Who We Are:

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.

In the fall of 2014 CAHP acquired Franklin Street Community Housing Corporation, a Lansing based non-profit organization with a long history of neighborhood revitalization and financial education programs.  This partnership expanded both our program offerings and service territory.  Check out our Franklin Street website at to see what other great programs we now offer.
