About Public Housing

Currently, public housing is accepting applications. Rent is based on 30% of an individual’s income, which includes utilities. Applications are taken at the community of your choice. Please visit our website at http://www.durhamhousingauthority.org/our-communities/  for information on the various communities we manage.

Therefore, once a preliminary application is submitted, the applicant will be placed on the waiting list. When the application is pulled, the individual will be invited to an orientation session where a full application will be completed and vital information required such as a picture ID (issued by federal/state or local government), birth certificate, social security card, verification of income among other documents. Once all information is submitted, Management will determine if you meet DHA’s eligibility criteria.

At present, there are vacancies in our communities; therefore, the wait time may not be long. We recommend that you choose the location of your choice and fill out an application.
