A housing authority is a government body that provides low-rent or free housing to people who qualify. This type of housing is often referred to as low-income or moderate-income housing. Housing authorities provide the opportunity for people to gain stable, safe, and affordable housing opportunities within their community.

For more information on your local or regional housing authority and on how to apply for assistance, please visit the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s list of Iowa Housing Authorities.
