The Public Housing program is a federal program that provides decent and safe rental housing assistance for eligible low-income families, the elderly, and people with disabilities.
Public housing units are owned and managed by HOC. The units may be grouped in a single community (such as multi-family developments and high-rise towers) or distributed throughout the county in "scattered sites".
The Public Housing program is administered through HOC's Property Management Division at (240) 627-9791.
