About Low Income Public Housing
Low-Income Public Housing (LIPH) properties are located throughout the county. Our apartments range from studio apartments to four bedrooms in size to accommodate most any family.
Federally subsidized housing for low-income families and/or elderly or disabled persons. Residence is limited to those families with certain income limits. Rent is based on total family income and is reviewed at least once a year or any time there is a change in income or family composition. The size of the unit for which a family qualifies will be set by the Housing Authority based upon the family’s size and makeup. The tenant will pay no more than 30% of their adjusted annual income for rent. The tenant will receive a deduction for utility allowances. This amount varies depending on unit size. You are responsible for paying your rent and electric, maintaining your premises, and conforming to the usual rules of sanitation, decency, and consideration for the rights of your neighbors.
