We have three housing programs available to all residents in the Grand Rapids and

surrounding areas.  These grant programs are funded through the Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis and a partnership with Northpointe Bank.  The funding is typically released in the Spring, with applications taken on a first come, first serve basis.  Once the funding is exhausted, the program ends for the year.  The three programs are (click on each one for more detailed information):

Program Testimonies

It made my home look new and pleasing. It is a fair and promising program, everyone was nice and helpful.




[The roof and windows] keep the house warm and helped stop the water leak.  The new window keeps the house warmer and makes the house look nicer.  I would recommend people to (Seeds of Promise and Northpointe Bank).  They do a great job.




It has been a blessing to have a program like Seeds of Promise to be able to get minor repairs done to your home.  I couldn’t afford to do it on my own.  My home is just beautiful now, the new roof just set it off. Working with Northpointe Bank was a great experience.  Thank you for the opportunity of showing concern to inner city homes.  To God be the glory for all the things He has done.  Thank you for being a part of this program.  Thank you for all your help through this process.
