Additional eligibility requirements:
Unit sizes are assigned based on family size alone, not family composition. Below is the current Occupancy Standard (families who may be eligible for two different bedrooms sizes can chose which size they would like to be considered for).
Head of Household and Co-head of Household designation - A household cannot change who is the head or co-head once the family has been certified and has signed a lease. While a family can add members following admission to the public housing program, they cannot add “co-heads” once they have been admitted.
A public housing unit cannot be “passed-on” to family members. If the remaining Head or Co-Head of the household chooses to exit the program, the unit cannot be “assigned” or passed on to remaining family members. A public housing unit is not an inheritable right.
For more information refer to the Admissions and Continued Occupancy Policy (ACOP).
The annual income limits are established by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Annual income is the applicant family's income before any deductions.
