Public Housing Program

Apartment TowersThe Manhattan Housing Authority's Public Housing communities consist of one high-rise and one mid-rise apartment building, two communities with duplex/fourplex buildings and two communities of town home units. Public Housing units are generally owned and operated by a local Public Housing Authority, or PHA. PHA's receive operating subsidy from HUD and, combined with rental revenues, use the funding to maintain and manage the properties.
