​​​Public Housing Select - 2,3, and 4 Bedroom Sizes ONLY.  To qualify for Select Housing you must have employment income (minimum 30 hours a week) for at least one year or be receiving Disability or Social Security Income. 

In select housing, the CHA offers to those families that are eligible a type of housing where CHA services are not as prevalent. For example, this may be one of the CHA’s single family house; residents are required to cut the grass, maintain the lawn, and are expected to maintain the unit in higher level of care. The CHA is opening the 2, 3, and 4 bedroom waiting list for select housing.
