Memorandum
The Ann Arbor Housing Commission (AAHC) is redeveloping its entire portfolio of public housing under the HUD Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program. The AAHC completed capital needs assessments for each of its properties to determine whether the property should be renovated, demolished and newly constructed or sold. 909 Evelyn is a single family home that needs an estimated $143,000.00 worth of renovations.
