The Rockford Housing Authority provides assistance through a variety of programs established by Congress and funded through the Department of Housing and Urban Development. These programs include:
Low Income Public Housing
Public Housing provides assistance for low-income families, the elderly and people with disabilities. In Rockford, this program includes a variety of housing opportunities, including multi-family developments, high-rise towers and scattered site homes. The Rockford Housing Authority's low-income public housing program includes four family developments that consist of one-to-six bedroom apartments totaling 669 units. Also included are four high-rise towers, which house elderly residents and residents with disabilities. These apartments house approximately 1,000 families.
The Rockford Housing Authority has made a commitment to develop housing for persons with special needs. Under the low-income public housing programs, three developments were developed to accommodate persons with disabilities.
The Rockford Housing Authority also has a very active scattered site rental program that consists of single-family and duplex homes located throughout Rockford. The RHA owns and maintains 333 scattered site homes under the low income public housing program.
