Basics of Low-Rent Apartments
Through HUD, the US government gives funds directly to apartment owners, allowing them to lower the rents they charge low-income tenants. You can find low-rent apartments for senior citizens and people with disabilities, as well as for families and individuals.
To qualify for low-rent housing, there are strict income limits. Generally, your income must be 30% lower than the median income level in your area. But these guidelines vary by state, so be sure to check with your local agency.
To apply for low-rent housing you will likely have to visit the management office of the apartments that interest you.
