  Rental amounts at all or our complexes are based according to income. Applicants must qualify with gross income under the income limits.  The rental amounts take into consideration adjusted income, medical insurance premiums, on-going prescriptions and other cost factors. To find out what the income eligibility requirements are or to apply for housing, contact us at 603-692-2864 and we’ll be glad to help you.

What is Public Housing?  

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 1.2 million households living in public housing units, managed by some 3,300 Housing Agencies. 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.

"To provide persons of very low, low and moderate income with decent, safe, sanitary and affordable housing both in project-based and tenant-based programs without discrimination; also to provide programs targeted at ending dependency through education and employment to those individuals who are in need and/or want of new skills to improve their standard of living; and for those persons who are disabled and/or elderly to provide a living environment capable of dealing with their needs within their homes and community and not having to prematurely institutionalize individuals who can remain in their homes with assistance; and to the children of very low, low, and moderate income families to provide services aimed at early education and literacy that will enable them to have an even start with their peers in order to compete on a level that will insure the breaking of the cycle of dependency."
