WHAT IS PUBLIC HOUSING?

Public Housing (PH) was established to provide decent and safe rental housing for eligible low-income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities. PH comes in all sizes and types, from scattered single family houses to high rise apartments for elderly families. There are approximately 1.3 million households living in PH units, managed by some 3,300 Housing Authorities (HAs). The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) administers Federal aid to local HAs that manage the housing for low-income residents at rents they can afford.
