Public housing authorities refer to government subsidized living facilities. This local service is available to low income residents in almost every major U.S. city. Public housing is different from Section 8 locations because public housing facilities are owned and operated by the government. Section 8 housing is a form of government subsidized rental assistance. This affords the resident some choice in selecting where to live, but the building must accept and abide by existing regulations. Most of time, Section 8 residents pay roughly 30% of their rental fees and the government makes up for the rest of the total cost through vouchers. Anyone interested in obtaining this type of assistance will need to fill out an application with their local housing authorities. Some jurisdictions are not currently accepting applications due to dire financial conditions. This is an excellent service for low income people, although local facilities may have developed bad reputations. The Housing Authorities are constantly trying to improve living conditions for residents of subsidized housing projects because they have received a great deal of negative publicity over the years. Certain cities have better reputations than others. For example, local housing projects in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Los Angeles are well known for rampant crime and unsanitary settings. Subsidized buildings in Tacoma, Washington, Atlanta, Georgia, and Granby, Massachusetts have all received awards for their affordable housing programs.

More on Housing Authorities
Local officials are working to turn housing facilities into vibrant communities that offer more than mere shelter. There are initiatives designed to bring child care, educational training programs, after school care (homework help), fun events, parenting classes, and other things that enrich the lives of occupants. Many new housing developments are equipped with play areas for kids, swimming pools, and barbecues. These give the grounds a family atmosphere, which can bring down cultural and linguistic barriers. There are government programs to assist moderate income families, which tend to have better reputations in their local communities. For information about local public housing agencies, contact social welfare offices in the area. There is plenty information that can be found on-line, which may be a little more accurate since it comes from an objective, neutral source. Meeting with a local housing authorities representative or social worker is always a good idea because they can pass along pamphlets, distribute all the proper paperwork, and might even offer a guided tour of nearby developments. It is also wise to talk to the residents to get a better feel for what the conditions are like.
