This section offers information about federal public housing. The federal government has several programs that can help you find affordable housing if your family is low-income, if you're elderly, or if you're disabled.
Public housing is limited to low-income families and individuals, and you have to be a U.S. citizen or have eligible immigration status.
The Housing Choice (Section 8) voucher program is a federal program that helps low-income families rent safe and sanitary housing. If you qualify for this program, you are free to choose any housing that meets the requirements of the program.
The resources below give more information about these programs and how they apply to you.
