Cinnaire, in partnership with the City of Detroit and CHN Housing Partners, are leading an innovative Lease Purchase Program to enable 73 families in Detroit to transition from renting to sustainable homeownership since the program’s inception in 2019. The Advancing Communities Through Homeownership initiative uses five steps to help low-income families in rental properties achieve ownership over eight years. The original pilot program was developed across four Detroit neighborhoods, with 22 homes in Eastside Detroit Homes, 14 in University Grove Homes, 17 in Pinigree Park Homes and 17 in the Homes at Houston Whittier.
