WHAT IS PUBLIC HOUSING?
Public housing was established to provide decent and safe rental housing for eligible low-income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities. Public housing comes in all sizes and types, from scattered single family houses to highrise apartments for elderly families. There are approximately 1.2 million households living in public housing units, managed by some 3,300 HAs. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) administers Federal aid to local housing agencies (HAs) that manage the housing for low-income residents at rents they can afford. HUD furnishes technical and professional assistance in planning, developing and managing these developments.
Muskogee Housing Authority has three Public Housing communities. These communities include:
Green Country Village – 100 units (Family Site)
Port City Acres – 100 units (Family Site)
Honor Heights Towers – 200 units (Seniors* and Disabled Site)
*One household member must be 50 years or older
