St. Clair Housing Commission
Palmer Park Manor
The St. Clair Housing Commission administers two programs through their office. The first program is Low-Income Senior Housing. In 1969 “Palmer Park Manor” was built. It is a three story high rise with the elevator located directly in the middle of the complex for easy access to all. There is a laundry facility located on the second floor. It consists of three coin operated washers and dryers. All utilities are included in the rent (heat, electric, water/sewer). The St. Clair Housing Commission supplies an electric stove and refrigerator.
The St. Clair Housing Commission also administers the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program. The HCV program is a rent subsidy program that helps individuals pay for their rent in the general rental market. The Housing Commission currently administers between 28–30 vouchers.
Our complex consists of 62 apartments:
- 60 - One Bedroom (approx. 550 sq/ft)
- 2 - Two Bedroom (approx. 1100 sq/ft)
Community Amenities include:
- Smoke-Free Facilities

It is the mission of the St. Clair Housing Commission to provide safe, sanitary and affordable housing for low income elderly and persons with disabilities in a cost efficient manner and within an environment free from discrimination.
