Anyone is welcome to apply. Public Housing is limited to extremely low-income families and individuals. HACPFC determines each applicant’s eligibility based upon several factors, including the following:


Applicants must have an annual household income at or below the extremely low- income limits – 30% of Area Median Income (AMI) for the Tri-Cities Metropolitan Area as established by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Assets:  Money, property, and other goods having value are taken into account when income is calculated. Income created from assets is included the determination of eligibility, but the actual value of the assets is not. For example, if an applicant has money in a savings account, that money will not be added to the applicant’s income. However, if the applicant earns interest from the money in that savings account, the interest will be considered part of the applicant’s annual income.

Debt owed to HACPFC or other housing provider

HACPFC will deny the application of an individual/family who owes money to HACPFC, another housing authority, landlord, or other housing provider. This denial will remain in place until the applicant can prove that the debt has been paid in full.
