Eligibility Requirements

Pursuant to HUD regulation the Housing Authority is permitted to admit only eligible families to the Public Housing Program. To be eligible, an applicant must meet the PHA’s definition of family, must be income eligible and must be a citizen or non-citizen who has eligible immigration status. In addition, once the family is determined to be eligible, the family must meet the PHA’s screening criteria regarding family behavior and suitability for tenancy.

Monthly rents are based upon the following: 30% of the family’s monthly adjusted income; 10% of the family’s monthly income; a minimum amount of $25; or a flat rent amount based on market rent. Rent includes the monthly cost of shelter plus water, sewer, trash pick-up, and allowances for the electricity and gas.
