Classic Program

For some residents, like ourseniors or those with disabilities, long-term, stable housing assistance is critical. Our public housing team developed theClassic Programto meet their needs and simplify the process.

In this program the familysshelter burdenwill be28.5 percent of gross income. The decrease allows for a streamlined rent calculation with no deductions and housing costs that are stable for a three-year period.


The following graphic is an example of how the Classic Program works.

Classic Program Example: 1,110 (monthly income) X 28.5% = 316 (monthly rent)


To be part of the Classic Program, household members must be age 62 or older or adult household members must be identified as persons with a disability. Live-in attendants and full-time student dependents younger than age 24 will not disqualify a family from participating in the Classic Program.
