Public Housing

Housing Authority

Public Housing is rental housing of all sizes and types (including everything from huge apartment buildings to single family homes) that is managed by regional or local Public Housing Agencies (PHAs). Changes in the last few years have made this housing less dense and able to serve more mixed income families.

Frequently Asked Questions

Program Benefits   Am I eligible?   How do I apply?

If you qualify, the amount you’ll pay for rent will be based on your household income. That means that if you make less, you will pay less. Find out more about Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD’s) Public Housing Program.

If you are part of a low-income household and are a U.S. citizen (or have certain legal immigration status), or if you are elderly or disabled, you may be eligible to live in public housing. Income limits vary from area to area, so you’ll need to contact your local Housing Authority or HUD Field Office for more information about qualifying for public housing.

Contact your local Housing Authority or HUD Field Office to learn how to apply.

Typically, you will complete a written application with documentation about your household, your income, and your needs. A Housing Authority official may also visit your home, or talk to your current or former employers, landlords, and banks.
