WHAT IS PUBLIC HOUSING?
Public housing was established to provide decent and safe rental housing for eligible low-income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
Public housing is limited to low-income families and individuals. A HA determines your eligibility based on:
1) annual gross income
2) whether you qualify as elderly, a person with a disability, or as a family
3) U.S. citizenship or eligible immigration status.
If you are eligible, the HA will check your references to make sure you and your family will be good tenants. HAs will deny admission to any applicant whose habits and practices may be expected to have a detrimental effect on other tenants or on the project's environment.
HOW IS RENT DETERMINED?
Your rent in this program, would be based on your family's anticipated gross annual income less deductions, if any.
