The Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburg provides rental subsidy to the maximum extent allowable. Funding is awarded by the Federal Government to subsidize low-income families with their rent. The Annual Contract Contribution awarded to the City determines the number of families the Housing Authority can assist.
Factors in determining the number of units available to assist eligible families are based on average housing assistance payments, fair market rents established by HUD and administrative costs. With this in mind, the Housing Authority is currently able to assist 948 families with Housing Choice Vouchers and 160 Veterans through the Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) Voucher program
