What is Affordable Housing?
Affordable Housing was established to provide decent and safe rental housing for eligible low-income families (this includes persons without children), the elderly, and person with disabilities.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) administers Federal aide to this agency for affordable housing at rents families can afford. Our housing inventory consists of two high-rises (Windsor and Maley Apartments), and four family sites (Palmetto Park, Caroline Village, Northwood Village, and Walnut Oak) with duplex apartments.

Affordable housing is limited to low-income families and individuals.
Eligibility is based on:
1. Annual gross income
2. Whether you qualify as elderly, a person with a disability, or as a family
3. U.S. citizenship or eligible immigration status
How rent is determined?
Rent is based on a family’s anticipated gross annual income less deductions, if any.
