PUBLIC HOUSING

WHAT IS THE ROLE OF TSHA?

We may provide other services that might include such things as: child care; homeownership opportunities for qualified families; employment training opportunities; employment programs for residents; and support programs for the elderly.

    WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

    PH is limited to low-income families and individuals. Your eligibility is based on:

    1) Annual gross income;
    2) Whether you qualify as elderly, a person     with a disability, or as a family; and
    3) U.S. citizenship or eligible immigration status.

    If you are eligible, we will check your references to make sure you and your family will be good tenants. We will deny admission to any applicant whose habits and practices may be expected to have a detrimental effect on other tenants or on the project's environment. HAs use income limits developed by HUD. Income limits vary from area to area so you may be eligible at one HA but not at another.

    WILL I NEED TO PRODUCE ANY DOCUMENTATION?

    Yes, the HA representative will request whatever documentation is needed (e.g., birth certificates, income verification, etc.) to verify the information given on your application. The HA will also rely on direct verification from your employer, etc. You will be asked to sign a form to authorize release of pertinent information to the HA.

    ARE THERE ANY SELECTION PREFERENCES?

    Yes, you may receive a point for each of the following preferences at HATS:

    1. Homeless, living in a shelter
    2. Local, living in Tarpon Springs
    3. Working, at least 20 hours/week

    Preferences for you and/or your family will be verified during the application process.
    HOW IS RENT DETERMINED?

    Generally, you will pay 30% of your gross adjusted annual income toward rent. Your rent will be determined using a formula based on your family's anticipated gross annual income less deductions, if any. HUD regulations allow HAs to exclude a number of allowances from annual income. Based on your application, the HA representative will determine if any of the allowable deductions should be subtracted from your annual income. Annual income is the anticipated total income from all sources received from the family head and spouse, and each additional member of the family 18 years of age or older.


    HOW LONG CAN I STAY IN PUBLIC HOUSING? In general, you may stay in PH as long as you and your family comply with the lease.
