Low Income Public Housing

Families wishing to apply for the public housing program with the Housing Authority of Pulaski County (HAPC) must complete an application for housing assistance. The application process requires the family to provide limited, basic information establishing whether or not the family is eligible for the program. The completed application will be dated and time stamped upon its return to the main office. The housing authority will run a credit check on the head and or co-head of household listed on the application and a criminal background check on all adult household members. At this time, HAPC will make a determination of eligibility to the housing program. The family is then placed on the appropriate waiting list, according to the information provided on the application. If the housing authority determines the family to be ineligible, a notice will be mailed to the address listed on the application. The notice will state the reason(s) of ineligibility and will offer the family an opportunity to request an informal review of the determination.

Income Eligibility

Because HAPC offers an income-based program for housing assistance, applicants must also be determined “income eligible”.  Income limits are based upon total annual household income (all members) and are established by HUD annually.  Below is a list of current income limits for Pulaski County:
