Low Income Public Housing Program

 

Program Information
 

Public housing was established to provide decent, safe and affordable rental housing for eligible low-income families, the elderly and people with disabilities. Public housing comes in all sizes and types, from single-family homes to high-rise apartments for elderly families.

 

Across our country, there are 1.3 million households living in public housing and managed by 3,300 Housing Authorities.  The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) administers federal grants to local housing agencies that provide and manage housing for low-income residents.  HUD furnishes technical and professional support in planning, developing and managing these developments.

  • Low-income families

  • Disabled

  • Elderly

 

ELIGIBILITY IS BASED ON:
