Jackson boasts a booming downtown that continues to attract new businesses and residents, tree-lined neighborhoods with affordable housing, and a growing parks system that enhances resident quality of life. Energy, health care, manufacturing, education and retail industries contribute to a robust local economy. Excellent local schools, which feature new facilities, are great assets to the city. Located along major highways, Jackson is quickly connected to other Michigan metro areas. We welcome all to participate in Jackson’s growth so we can build an inclusive community that helps everyone thrive.

Homes will be sold to qualified buyers earning up to 120% of the Area Median Income (also known as AMI). Residents and current non-residents can purchase these homes, with a traditional mortgage, and all homes must be owner-occupied. The City of Jackson will provide $25,000 in down-payment assistance per home. Applicants are also encouraged to apply for an additional $10,000 of down payment assistance through the Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA).
