Public Housing Information
The Public Housing Program is a federally funded program that provides decent and safe rental housing for eligible low-income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities.
Unit offers are made at final eligibility dependent upon availability and the needs of the family. Upon acceptance of the unit, a lease is signed by HRHA and the family. The responsibilities of the Housing Authority and the family are outlined in the lease. The Public Housing resident pays a portion of their income towards rent and utilities. Utilities are included in the rent; however, residents are billed monthly for any amounts in excess of the utility allowance.
Hampton Redevelopment and Housing Authority (HRHA) is responsible for the management and operation of its four (4) local public housing communities; Lincoln Park, Lincoln Park High-rise, North Phoebus Townhouses, and Langley Village.
Flat Rent: HUD Requirements
All public housing residents have two options in regards to rent:
- Income-based rent, based on 30% of the adjusted household income, or;
- Flat rent, based on market comparable rents for the location and property.
Residents that have selected the flat rent option AND currently pay:
- Less rent than the amount in the chart below may experience an increase in rent.
- More rent than the amount in the chart below will likely not experience an increase in rent.
