What is the Public Housing Program?
A Public Housing Agency (PHA) is a governmental body that is authorized to assist in the development or operation of housing for low-income families. The goal of the agency is to provide decent, safe, sanitary, drug-free housing in good repair to all SFHA residents. In this effort, the agency also strives to improve living conditions for low-income families while charging only 30% of the families income for rent. The rules and regulations that govern Public Housing Authorities are determined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). These rules and regulations are also referenced in the Code of Federal Regulations 24 (CFR). A new CFR is released each year with updated rules and regulations.
The formula to determine rental payment is the highest of the following:
-30% of monthly adjusted income (after allowed deductions)
-10% of monthly income or
-$25 Minimum Rent
-Flat Rent (varies by property as determined by market survey)
