Public Housing Program Participant Resources

The Public Housing program, which is funded through grants from the federal United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), was established to provide decent, affordable and safe rental housing for eligible low-income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities. Nationwide there are 1.2 million households living in public housing units, managed by 3,300 housing agencies. As one of the housing agencies, the Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency (SHRA) receives technical and professional guidance from HUD, as well as annual federal aid, to manage the Public Housing program for the City and County of Sacramento. Nearly 3000 households are provided affordable housing through this program. The Public Housing Agency (PHA) Five Year Plan for the City and County of Sacramento and other related documents related to the administration of the public housing program are available here.
