Accessing any of the Detroit Housing Network’s housing programs or services begins with our online intake form – also known as the Housing Service Intake Form. You can access and submit our intake form here or by clicking the Get Started button. Page one of our intake form provides instructions on completing the intake form.


Documents and Information Needed

The intake form will ask you to upload several documents related to you and your home. Be prepared to upload documents such as your State issued ID, proof of income, utility statements, mortgage statement and others. Required documents will vary by service selected.

The intake form will also ask for personal information related to your household, financials and other information that could qualify you for housing programs or services.


What to Expect After Submitting Your Intake Form

Submit your intake form and a Detroit Housing Network Member will reach out to you via email to complete the intake process.

Yes. If you need support submitting our intake form, you can call the Housing Resource Helpline at (866)-313-2520 to be connected to the Detroit Housing Resource Helpline.

A housing specialist will work with you to choose the services you are interested and direct you to a Detroit Housing Network Member who provides access to that service.

If you have already completed our intake form and received a service from one of our Network Members, reach out to the Detroit Housing Network Member that you last worked with to receive additional housing services.

A complete list of Network Members and their contact information can be found on our Network Members page here. Network Members are available over the phone and in-person, however, it is recommended that you call Members before stopping by their location.


If You Submitted an Intake Form and No One Has Contacted You  

If it has been more than five business days since you submitted your intake form and no one has contacted you via email, contact the Detroit Housing Network at for an update on its status.
