What do HUD apartments feature?

How much is rent?

Our rental rates are set by federal law.  Rent is based on your income, adjusted to allow for dependents, utilities, medical deductions (for elderly/disabled/handicap only) and other items.  If your income goes up or down, so will your rent.

The Housing Authority Board of Commissioners has approved the use of FLAT RENTS for qualified residents.  If you do qualify, you may choose between the flat rent or stay with the traditional calculation (30% of adjusted gross income).
