Public Housing


The Public Housing Program provides housing assistance for eligible low-income families. The SHC operates five high-rise developments for elderly (62 and older) and disabled families. The five high-rises are Davenport Manor, Elmwood Manor, Maplewood Manor, Pinewood Manor and Rosien Towers. The SHC operates two general occupancy developments, that include Town and Garden and Scattered Sites. Town and Garden is made up of 2 and 3 bedroom duplexes; Scattered Sites include single-family homes and duplexes, ranging from 1 to 4 bedroom units.


Eligibility for the Public Housing Program is based on: 1) annual gross income; 2) whether you qualify as elderly, a person with disabilities, or as a family; and 3) U.S. citizenship or eligible immigration status. If you are eligible, the SHC will check your references to make sure you and your family will be good tenants. The SHC will deny admission to any applicant whose habits and practices may be expected to have a detrimental effect on other tenants or on the development's environment.


Rent is  based on the family's anticipated gross annual income less deductions, if any. HUD regulations allow deductions from annual income for the following allowances: $480 for each dependent; $400 for an elderly or disabled family; and some medical deductions for families headed by an elderly person or a person with disabilities.  Families pay no more than 30% of adjusted monthly income. The income limits listed to the left apply for admission. Income cannot exceed the amounts listed according to the number of persons in the household.
