Public Housing

Public housing was established to provide decent, safe and affordable housing for eligible low-income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities. Public housing comes in all sizes and type, from scattered single-family houses to apartment living for elderly/disabled. U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) administers Federal aid to local housing authorities that manage the housing for low-income residents at rents that are affordable. In general, you may stay in public housing as long as you comply with the lease. If, at reexamination of your family’s income, the Housing Authority determines you have sufficient income to obtain housing in the private market, the Housing Authority may determine whether your family should stay in public housing. You will not be required to move unless there is affordable housing available for you in the private market. Rents are based on 30% of adjusted monthly income.
