About Low Rent Public Housing

About Low Rent Public Housing

The Area Housing Authority administers HUD’s Public Housing Program, also referred to as Low Rent Public Housing. There are 355 housing units which are owned, managed and maintained by the Area Housing Authority. The rent is 30% of the household income. Unlike the Section 8 Program, the Low Rent Public Housing Program participant does not work with individual landlords.

For more detailed information, please refer to the Admissions & Continued Occupancy Policy (ACOP).
