  2. Household size

    Units of various sizes are available in our programs. We work to match household size with an appropriate unit size. For instance, a 1-person household will not be considered for a 2- or 3-bedroom unit.

  3. Specific population (for some units)

    Depending on the unit, there may be certain audience restrictions. For example, we have units especially for seniors or veterans.

For homebuyers

For those looking to buy a home through MOHCD programs, we also have more eligibility requirements before you apply.
