  • Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program

    Public housing and HCV families achieve self-sufficiency over a five to seven year period towards ending dependency on all public benefits, such as welfare, food stamps, medical assistance, and child care subsidies.

  • Other Affordable Housing Options

    These are additional affordable housing programs; some of which offer below-market rents and others which base their rent on 30% of the household income. Some of these housing programs are not HOC-related. In addition, each program and/or development maintains its own waiting list, income requirements and application process. Therefore, you must call each apartment complex directly for information and/or to request an application.
