EightCAP provides low-income households and individuals with housing and homeless assistance as well as referrals and connections to resources. For a housing or homeless services prescreen, call (616) 225-5965 or (866) 754-9315 #3, or for the online form.

Services offered vary by funding availability. Examples include:

  • Temporary Shelter through Hotel/Motel Services when local shelters are full or not available.
  • Assistance with placement on the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Waitlist with homeless preference and recertification.

EightCAP’s Housing and Homeless Services may provide financial assistance for eligible households. Eligibility requirements vary by the program and funding available. A housing/homeless prescreen is the first step in that process. EightCAP is here to help you get back on your feet and self-sufficient again. Even if your household is not eligible for financial assistance, EightCAP staff can connect you with a wide variety of resources.

Eligibility documentation is required. EightCAP is only able to serve those who reside or work within Gratiot, Isabella, Ionia, and Montcalm Counties. If you reside in Michigan, but outside of EightCAP’s service area, you can find your Housing Assessment and Resource Agency (HARA) by visiting: Michigan.gov/mshda or clicking here : michigan.gov/mshda
