Parma Public Housing Agency/Low Income Public Housing Program

Public Housing is a government subsidized program designed to assist your community in providing decent, safe and sanitary housing for families of low to moderate income. Assisted homes are modest in size and appearance, but provide a level of dignity for resident families. Public Housing can be an important step toward assisting families in becoming self-sufficient. It also allows senior citizens and disabled individuals to live independently.

The PPHA owns and manages one development (60 public housing units) in the City of Parma. The program is funded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

ATTENTION: THE PUBLIC HOUSING WAITING LIST IS CURRENTLY CLOSED.
