What is housing assistance?
Housing assistance is available to
help people with low and moderate incomes, including the
elderly and the disabled. The federal government offers
housing assistance through the Department of Housing and
Urban Development (HUD). HUD also contracts with state
and local agencies to make sure everyone has access to
safe and affordable housing. The public housing program
offers safe, clean rental housing to the neediest
members of the population, including low-income
families, people with disabilities and the elderly.
Families and individuals who qualify for the public
housing program still pay a portion of the rent, but the
rent cost is far more affordable than what they would
pay for a non-assisted rental home. The rental units may
be single-family houses, multi-unit homes and
apartments. Approximately 1.2 million people live in
public housing, and the US Department of Housing and
Urban Development (HUD) is responsible for managing this
program through local housing agencies.
