Self-Sufficiency, Community Service
Any public housing resident 18 years or older that is not working or attending school full time MUST contribute 8 hours per month of community service or participate in an economic self-sufficiency program for 8 hours per month, or a combination of the two, unless that resident is exempt due to age and/or disability.
Residents pay a portion of the rent, typically based on 30% of the family’s income.
