Independent Living in Public Housing Communities

HOC has 555 public housing units located in 3 buildings designated for elderly residents and persons with disabilities. Applicants to these buildings must come through the HOC public housing waiting list.
These apartment communities are conveniently near transportation and shopping. Each building has a community room, laundry facilities, and some recreational activities. Apartments have individually controlled heat and air conditioning and full kitchens. A single HOC public housing application for housing will place you on the waiting list for these three properties.
Due to long waiting lists for public housing, HOC's list is not accepting new applicants. For an update on the current status, check the home page of HOC's website. If the list is going to open to new applicants, information will be posted online. Or, you may call 240-627-9789. A recording will announce the status of HOC's waiting lists.
