Housing Resources

  1. I am in need of affordable housing

Affordable housing is defined as housing that costs the household no more than 30 percent of its gross monthly income, meaning what is affordable to one may not be affordable to another.

Different housing options to consider

Housing Benefits 101

HB101 is a free, statewide resource network that helps solve problems and navigate the system of available housing benefits and resources.

Housing Choice Vouchers

A government-funded program that helps low income households pay the rent on private, market-rate rental units. 

Market Rate Housing

The cost of market rate housing is determined entirely by the state of the rental market in the community. It can change based on the supply and demand of the housing market. Housinglink

Project-based Section 8 Housing

A government-funded program that provides rental housing to low income households in privately owned and managed rental units. The subsidy stays with the building. 

Tax Credit Housing

Often referred to as LIHTC (Low Income Housing Tax Credit), formally Section 42, tax credit housing may be more affordable than market rate housing. View more information about tax credit housing on the HousingLink website.
