Public Housing Program
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. YHA owns and operates 150 units and offers a variety of housing to applicants so they can choose the type which best fits their family's needs.
Eligible tenants will meet the following requirements:
• Must be low income
• Must not have any felony convictions in the last three-years.
Eligible tenants pay approximately 30-percent of their income for rent and utilities.
