Public Housing

Public housing was established to provide decent and safe rental housing for eligible low-income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities.  Public housing comes in all sizes and types, from scattered single family houses to high-rise apartments for elderly families.  The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) administers Federal aid to local housing agencies that manage the housing for low-income residents at rents they can afford.

Raleigh Housing Authority (RHA) provides two types of public housing:  conventional public housing and incentive based public housing.  RHA manages one conventional public housing waiting list and four separate incentive based public housing waiting lists.  Each waiting list has a separate application, application process, and waiting list.  Applicants are able to apply for as many or as few of RHA’s public housing waiting lists as desired.
