Am I eligible for Public Housing? If yes, what would be my estimated rent?
Households admitted into public housing must have household income within HUD-established income limits. Below are the current Low Income Limits for the Detroit area:
HUD Low Income Limits (effective April 1, 2020)
|# of persons
||1 person||2 persons||3 persons||4 persons||5 persons||6 persons||7 persons||8 persons||9 persons||10 persons||11 persons||12 persons
|Low Income Limit
Public housing residents can elect to pay either an income-based rent (based on household income) or a flat rent (based on number of bedrooms in the unit).
To estimate your income eligibility and income-based 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:
Estimated Monthly Income-Based Flat Rent
|# of bedrooms
||0 bedrooms||1 bedroom||2 bedrooms||3 bedrooms||4 bedrooms||5 bedrooms||6 bedrooms
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.
