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 high-rise apartments for elderly families. 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.

Fairmont Housing Authority administers 50 Scattered Site Public Housing Units with locations at: Holly Street, McDaniel Street, Manilla Street, Canal Street, Morro Street, and Marvin Street.
