Accessible Housing

Accessible Housing for Persons with Disabilities
PHA's housing inventory includes accessible units and units with various features to meet the needs of persons with mobility, hearing and vision impairments. 

There is a preference on our wait list for families with a household member who is disabled. Accessible dwelling units are reserved for eligible families whose members have mobility impairments and need the features of those units as confirmed by 3rd party verification. PHA will go down its waiting list to find such applicants.
