Public Housing

Woodland Heights and Carriage Circle apartments, as well as our scattered site homes - all located within the City of Pontiac.

We offer a convenient location with 24 hour emergency maintenance service for any problems that might croup up, plus an on-site security staff to give you peace of mind. Each community is located close to several shopping centers.

You can relax in a country setting on lakefront property that includes horseshoe pits, picnic and shuffle board areas…even a fishing pier!

The Commission owns, manages and maintains these properties. Rent is based upon household income and residents who live in our public housing units can avail themselves to the various Resident Services Programs offered. See available Housing or Housing Opportunities to learn how to apply.
