HUD (the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development) says you are eligible to apply for assistance if your income is very low (generally equal to 50 percent of the area median family income, adjusted for household size). A resident in Public Housing may either pay 30 to 40 percent of their adjusted gross income toward rent, or a flat fee based on the unit for which they qualify.
Here you pay about 60% of what you would pay in the open market for a rental unit. In comparison, a resident receiving HUD assistance for Public Housing would pay 30% of what they would pay in the open market.
A supportive housing community also provides wraparound supportive services. As your needs change, services and resources are available to help you. For example, many properties we manage have Service Coordinators who support the property managers by going above and beyond to ensure the wellness and comfort of our residents.
