Public Housing Eligibility & Income Limits
You may be eligible as an individual or a family if your total household income level does not exceed the HUD established Low-Income standards for the Metropolitan Statistical Area.
There is no minimum income level, and depending on the number of family members, a family making in excess of $41,000 per year can still be eligible for housing.
Your rent will be determined based on the total income of the individual or family requesting residence. There are also allowable deductions taken into consideration when determining a resident's rent. Annual reexaminations ensure that the amount of rent you pay does not exceed 30 percent of your adjusted monthly income.
Should your family's composition or income change during the year, interim reexaminations are made.
Reminder to all public housing residents:
If you are claiming you have no source of income; you are required to complete a Family Living Expense Form each month and turn it into the Public Housing Office no later then the 15th of the month.
If you do not turn the required FLE form into our office by the 15th of each month, you will be in violation of your dwelling lease and your lease will be terminated.
Failure to provide complete information or the making of false, fictitious, or fraudulent statements will result in immediate lease termination.
Forms are not available for pickup.
Due to Covid, we will mail, email, or fax forms per request or you can download them from our website.
The form REQUIRES you to attach copies of ALL monthly bills (ie:):
- Car payments
- Car insurance
- Cable TV, etc.
- along with written, signed and dated statements from the person(s) providing financial assistance (loan, paying your bill(s), etc.).
If you do not attach copies of the required bills to your FLE, it will not be accepted by the Public Housing Office, therefore placing you in violation of your dwelling lease.
