Public Housing was established to provide decent and safe rental housing for low-income to moderate families, elderly persons and persons with disabilities. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) administers federal aid to local housing agencies to manage the housing for residents at rents they can afford.


The Fair Housing Act protects people from discrimination when they are renting, buying, or securing financing for any housing. The prohibitions specifically cover discrimination because of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability and the presence of children. Learn More
