Public Housing Program
Elizabethton Housing & Development Agency
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. There are approximately 1.3 million
households living in public housing units, managed by some 3,300 HAs. The U.S.
Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) administers Federal aid to
local housing agencies (HAs) that manage the housing for low-income residents at
rents they can afford. HUD furnishes technical and professional assistance in
planning, developing and managing these developments.
Pets, when properly registered with the office are allowed.
Activities are provided for residents of all ages. The Resident Services Program
allows for educational and cultural experiences. Resident participation is
encouraged in Public Housing.
