HUD Public Housing Program
1 min read

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development ( also known as HUD) gives federal aid to local housing agencies. These housing agencies provide decent and safe rental housing that is affordable for low-income families, adults 50 years of age and older, and persons with disabilities. If you meet the program guidelines, you pay no more than 30% of your adjusted gross income for your rental.

Please note: Depending on where you live and the amount of assistance available, you may be placed on a waiting list. Because of limited resources, long waiting lists are common.

How do I apply?

To find out how to apply, please contact your local housing agency.
