How long can I stay in public housing?
In general, you may stay in public housing as long as you comply with the lease; although we do encourage residents that are not seniors or handicap to move in, up, and out of public housing.
If, at reexamination your family's income is sufficient to obtain housing on the private market, the HA may determine whether your family should stay in public housing. You will not be required to move unless there is affordable housing available for you on the private market.
