HHA maintains a diverse portfolio of apartment communities located throughout the city of Huntsville that are dedicated to low-income residents. The housing units range in size from efficiencies to five-bedroom apartments to single family homes, and have rent amounts that are well below market rates. The large majority of these properties are managed and operated by HHA. Some of our apartments are public housing, which is directly subsidized by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and managed by HHA. Rent amounts in public housing are set at 30 percent of the household’s monthly income. HHA also manages Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) properties in Huntsville.
