The public Housing Authority offices were established to provide safe and decent rental housing for low-income families, seniors, and people with disabilities. There are different types of public housing and many different programs to assist those in need.

On average, around 3,300 public housing authority offices are managed by the authority and there are just under 1 million households benefiting from the programs set forth by HUD’s Public Housing Program.

The U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development assists the local housing agencies by providing Federal aid.  The local housing agencies then manage the resources to assist those in need of affordable housing to apply for the programs they are eligible for.

Programs

Tenant-Based Assistance

Tenant-Based Assistance

The Tenant-Based Assistance program, also known as the Housing Choice Voucher program, is a HUD initiative that provides rental assistance to low-income families, elderly individuals, and people with disabilities.  The program enables families to choose a suitable housing unit in the private rental market, and the rental assistance is paid directly to the landlord on behalf of the tenant.  The program allows families to maintain their independence and freedom of choice in selecting their housing, and it helps them afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing that meets their needs.  The program assists to expand affordable housing options and reduce homelessness by providing low-income families with greater access to stable and secure housing.  The program plays an imperative role in improving the lives of millions of low-income families and individuals by providing them with a pathway to self-sufficiency and economic opportunity.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a public housing authority/agency (PHA)?

Arrow Down Sign

A PHA is a public agency charged with providing safe, sanitary and decent housing to the most vulnerable populations in their community. This includes low-income families, especially those at risk of homelessness, as well as the elderly and disabled.

Although housing authorities have a strong relationship with local, state, and federal governments, they are actually independent agencies. Charted under state law, a housing authority is an autonomous, not-for-profit public corporation. This organizational structure allows housing authorities to work in conjunction with local governments and agencies to develop long-term housing strategies for communities.

Though independently run, housing authorities are required to follow federal regulations. In addition, housing authorities receive a subsidy from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). In some states, housing authorities receive funds from state or operate separate housing programs not directly subsidized by a government agency.
