Rent in public housing can be based on income.
To estimate your income eligibility and rent, please answer each question in the “Your Answer” column.
NOTE: Families can select to pay a flat rent, which is based on the number of bedrooms.
Below is DHC’s current flat rent schedule:

NOTE: This information is only an estimate of possible eligibility and rent.
Families admitted to DHC’s Low Income Public Housing Program must first apply for housing and subsequently meet both
eligibility and suitability criteria before an offer of housing is made. Information provided by families must be verified by DHC.
This estimate is not a guarantee of income eligibility, should not be considered an offer of housing by DHC,
whether implied or expressed, nor does it obligate the DHC in any manner to offer housing to your family.
