Public Housing

Program Overview

Public Housing is federally-funded subsidized rental housing for income eligible families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) distributes federal subsidies to the Housing Authority, which owns and manages the housing for income eligible residents at affordable rents.

The Housing Authority operates three different apartment complexes: North Cedar Terrace, South Cedar Terrace, and Morningside Townhomes. There are a total of 148 units made up of 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom, and 3-bedroom units.

Who is Eligible?

To be eligible for assistance under the public housing program, an applicant must be income eligible, have a favorable rental history, pass the criminal background screening, and not owe money to another housing agency. Applicants must be income eligible to be placed onto any waiting list. The income limits are determined by HUD.
