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

Project-Based Assistance

Project-Based Assistance

The Project-Based Assistance program is one of the many initiatives under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) that assist in providing affordable housing options to low-income families.  This program targets individuals and families who are struggling to afford rental housing in the private market.  Under the Project-Based Assistance Program, HUD enters into contracts with private landlords to subsidize the rents of eligible households.  This program provides a stable rental subsidy for a specific housing unit, ensuring that the tenant’s rent payment does not exceed 30% of their income.  In return, the landlords agree to maintain the rental unit in good condition and to follow all of HUD’s rules and regulations.

HUD’s Project-Based Assistance program has several benefits for low-income families.  One of the main advantages is that it provides long-term affordable housing.  With the support of this program, tenants can live in their homes for as long as they meet the program’s eligibility criteria, providing them with home stability.  Additionally, the program ensures that housing units meet HUD’s quality standards, as landlords are required to maintain the units in good condition.  Furthermore, the program helps reduce homelessness by providing safe and stable housing to those who may otherwise be at risk of homelessness.

To be eligible for the Project-Based Assistance program, individuals and families must meet certain income requirements and other eligibility criteria.  The program is designed to target low-income households, and the subsidy provided by HUD is calculated based on the household’s income.  Families with members who have disabilities and seniors are given priority under this program.  Applicants must also meet the program’s screening and eligibility requirements, which include background checks, credit checks, and landlord references.  Once accepted into the program, tenants sign a lease agreement with the private landlord and HUD provides the rental assistance to the landlord on their behalf.

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.
