Assistance For Single Moms

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) works with property owners to offer reduced rent to low-income families. While subsidized housing assistance isn't limited to single-parent families, it's one of the most common rental assistance programs available to single mothers and their children.


How the HUD Subsidized Housing Program Works

The government gives funds directly to apartment owners, who then decrease the amount of rent they charge to low-income tenants. This form of subsidized housing assistance is available for low-income families, as well as individuals, senior citizens, and people with disabilities.

Low-income single mothers looking to participate in HUD's subsidized housing program should begin by looking for an apartment on the HUD website.


 To find HUD-sponsored public housing in your area, contact your state's Public Housing Agency directly.


Habitat for Humanity is a global nonprofit housing organization working in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S. and in approximately 70 countries. Habitat’s vision is of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. 

Habitat works toward our vision by building strength, stability and self-reliance in partnership with families in need of decent and affordable housing. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage.
