Free Housing Department

There should never be homeless owners of a corporation that owns empty homes.

Housing is a Right

The fourth sentence in the Detroit city charter Bill of Rights reads: "The people have a right to expect city government to provide for its residents, decent housing;". The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states: "Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing.."

Live Your Best Life
Housing is a fundamental part of a decent living. Detroit has an abundance of empty properties that lawfully belong to the people of the city. No longer will the owners/residents of the city watch their properties be dealt into the hands of wealthy investors while they remain homeless or renting. 

With your consent the Detroit Free Housing Authority can allocate you a home. Follow the following steps to begin your new life as a home owner with no costs.

1. Give Your Consent

If you have not filled out the consent form on the home page, please do so below.

2. Find a Home You Like

Locate an empty city-owned property you like. This can include the home you are in if it is being purchased from the city or Land Bank.

3. Make Sure It Is City-owned

Go to the county treasurer website by clicking the button below and fill in the street number and street name only (leave Municipality empty) then press the search button. If Land Bank shows up as the taxpayer then it is city-owned. If nothing shows up do a search on as well.

5. Register Selected Home

As an Afrodescendant or indigenous person, I choose to assert my right of self-determination and consent to the temporary (until official elections) authority of The People (trust organization) and its departments such as the Detroit Free Housing Authority and the reparations program to allocate benefits to Detroit residents.
