HUD Public Housing Program

What is HUD Public Housing Program?

Public housing was started to give decent and safe rental housing for qualifying low-income families. Public housing comes in a variety of dimensions and forms, from scattered single family homes to high-rise apartments for elderly households.

Who is eligible for this program?

Public housing is restricted to poor families and individuals and eligibility is established on annual gross income and U.S. citizenship or eligible immigration status. If you are found qualified for this program, a public housing agency will verify your references to ensure you and your family will be responsible renters. Any applicant whose lifestyles and behaviors are assumed to have a harmful consequence on other tenants or on the project's environment, then their application will be rejected.

How to apply for this program?

If you wish to apply for a voucher, get in touch with the local Public Housing Agency (PHA):
