Public Housing  for Families, Seniors, and
People Needing Special Access Features or Accommodations 

 

What is public housing?

Public housing was established to provide decent and safe rental housing for eligible low-income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities. Across the United States, there are approximately 1.2 million households living in public housing units. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) administers Federal aid to local housing agencies, including Salem Housing Authority, that manage the housing for low-income residents at rents they can afford. Salem Housing Authority manages 245 units of public housing.

Who is eligible?

Public housing is limited to low-income families and individuals. Salem Housing Authority determines eligibility based on: 1) annual gross income; 2) whether you qualify as elderly, a person with a disability, or as a family; and 3) U.S. citizenship or eligible immigration status. See our income eligibility guidelines and our Plans & Policies page for further information.
