Public Housing was established to provide decent and safe rental housing for low-income to moderate families, elderly persons and persons with disabilities. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) administers federal aid to local housing agencies to manage the housing for residents at rents they can afford.

A local preference is a system, adopted by SLHA, for selecting families admitted to the PH Program. Local preferences are only valid for the head of the household, co-head of the household, spouse or sole member. Dependents cannot qualify a family for a local preference. Please remember that claiming a local preference does not automatically grant you a preference on the wait list. Preferences will be verified by SLHA.
