Eligibility for Subsidized Housing

To live in subsidized housing or get a mobile voucher, you must meet certain criteria

  • Income
    • All subsidized housing programs have income limits that are based on the average income in the area where you’re applying.
  • Disability & Age
    • Many subsidized units are only open to people who are elderly or have a disability. The age limit depends on the property and its funding. Many properties are open to both people with disabilities and the elderly, while some programs only admit people who are over the age of 62.
  • Background
    • Many properties will look at your personal history as well. It may collect information about your past rent payment history, landlord references and credit reports. Even though information that a landlord or housing authority collects may seem negative, it may not be grounds to disqualify you from receiving assistance
