There is no question that the need for affordable housing in Mississippi is tremendous. The state of Mississippi is constantly working to increase the quality and affordability of the housing stock available to low and moderate income Mississippians. The Mississippi Home Corporation (MHC) was created by the Mississippi Home Corporation act of 1989 to address these housing needs. MHC plays a critical role in these efforts working with the Governor, the Mississippi Legislature, the U.S. Congressional delegation, and others in the affordable housing industry to develop private and public partnerships throughout the state and nation to increase the awareness of Mississippi’s desperate need for affordable housing.
MHC's mission is to enhance Mississippi 's long-term economic viability by financing safe, decent, affordable housing and helping working families build wealth. In keeping with its mission, MHC has developed various programs. Explore the "Programs" tab above to learn more about each of our programs.
Our Core Function
MHC's core function is to assist owner occupied and rental housing targeted to moderate and lower-income working families. We do this by providing housing finance products not available from other sources. We continually evolve our products to fit current and emerging housing needs throughout Mississippi.
