What is Public Housing?
Public housing was established by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) to provide decent and safe rental housing for eligible low-income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities. Public housing comes in all sizes and types. In Freeport, there are 3 separate apartment complexes.
Am I eligible?
Public housing is limited to low-income families and individuals. The Freeport Housing Authority determines your eligibility based on: 1) annual gross income; 2) whether you qualify as elderly, a person with a disability, or as a family; and 3) U.S. citizenship or eligible immigration status.
