provide low cost single-family and multi-family housing and related services, for low income tenants or buyers. We will continue to develop, rehabilitate housing for the low to moderate income that will provide them with the opportunity to own, maintain, or lease. WCCA may sell, or transfer a housing project for low and moderate income rental under the authority so granted by the Michigan State Housing Development Authority. This may include partnering with community groups, governmental agencies, other non-profit organizations, and/or some businesses.
Economic Literacy classes are conducted that instruct on debt-free finances, homeownership, consumer automotive purchasing, plus investments and savings.

The benefits of this knowledge are intended to expand personal finance opportunities, including homeownershiresume writing and job placement opportunities through networking with various businesses are also incorporated into these classes and training.
