Am I eligible?

Eligibility for a housing voucher is determined by the Public Housing Agency (PHA) based on the total annual gross income and family size and is limited to U.S. citizens and specified categories of non-citizens who have eligible immigration status. During the application process, the PHA will collect information on family income, assets and family composition. The PHA will verify this information with other local agencies, your employer, bank and will use the information to determine program eligibility and the amount of housing assistance payment you will receive. If you are determined eligible, the PHA will put your name on a waiting list. Once your name has reached the top of the waiting list, the PHA will contact you and issue you a voucher.
