PUBLIC HOUSING
Residents

Public Housing is a government subsidized program designed to assist your community in providing decent, safe and sanitary housing for families of low to moderate income. Assisted homes are modest in size and appearance, but provide a level of dignity for resident families. Public Housing can be an important step toward assisting families in becoming self-sufficient. It also allows senior citizens and disabled individuals to live independently.

The HABD owns and manages 14 developments (over 4,000 public housing units) in the Birmingham Metropolitan Area. The program is funded through the Department Of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
