Public Housing

HUDs main housing assistance for families is the Public Housing Program.

Public housing is available for qualified low income families, seniors, or disabled. There are about 1.2 million public housing households in the US. HUD administers these programs.

Eligibilities:
1. Annual Income.
2. Qualifications: Family, Senior, Disabled.
3. US citizen or eligible immigrant status.

The Annual Income Limits are set by HUD. The lower income limits set by HUD are at 80% and very low income limits are 50% of the median income of the county or metro area where you live in. You can easily Google these limits based on your income.

LowIncomeHousing.us lists all of the local Housing Authorities where you can apply for Public Housing.

How is Public Housing rent determined. The rent is based on your families anticipated gross annual income less any deductions. Then depending on your low income or very low income rate, that number is multiplied by the percentage you are assigned by HUD.

Rent Assistance

Other types of housing assistance for families is rental assistance.

There are 2 main types of rent assistance.
1. HUD Housing Choice Vouchers as described above. Government grants that provide lower rates for rentals.
2. Local and National Non Profits such as Catholic Charities and the Salvation Army which assist the needy with help towards their rent when they are going through a crisis. We have found many of these programs and list them through LowIncomeHousing.us on the right navigational section of the website from the city low income housing pages.

Trying to find a low income apartment in Buford ga

I have never had a low income housing before but I was told to look into it because my husband and I have been living in separate place from our kids. They have been staying with friends for over a year now cause we lost our apartment and haven't been able to get into one. My children are not in school anymore, But they still want to live at a home with us. I am the only person working besides one of my kids. We want to get my husband on disability. We would like to all be living together as a family in the same place. What do I have to do get into a low income house or apartment in the Suburb of Cleveland area such as Strongsville, Middleburg hts, or North Royalton areas. I do not make very much money at my job. Can anyone help me with what I should do to get in a home PLEASE, Thank you
