Home Forward Opens Waiting Lists for Selected Public Housing Communities

From June 8 - June 11, Home Forward will be accepting applications for studios, and one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom apartments at twelve subsidized housing communities. Both project-based Section 8 and public housing opportunities are available.

Project-based Section 8 is a program that helps people with their rent while they live in the apartment. Public housing consists of apartment and townhome communities that are owned and managed by Home Forward. Through the use of Federal funds, Home Forward is able to charge affordable rent that is based on the household’s income (public housing residents generally pay 28.5 - 31 percent of their income for rent).

The deadline to apply is June 11
