FAQ - Determine Eligibility


How do I know if my family (if any) and I are eligible for public housing?


If the money you and your family members receive in a year (gross wages, benefits, etc.) is no more than the amount allowed by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the number of people in your family, you may be eligible.

Most families who receive Social Security or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) benefits will qualify.

If you work you may also qualify.
