  Public Housing

Public Housing communities owned and operated by the Altoona Housing Authority include The Towers (Senior Community)  and Fairview Hills (Family Community). 

Our goal is to maintain safe, secure and affordable housing to very low and low income families - serving families, singles, senior citizens, disabled and handicapped individuals

While not part of the Public Housing inventory, Pleasant Village is also a vital community to the Altoona Housing Authority.
 

Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program

The Section 8 Housing Assistance Payment Program provides rental assistance in the form of a voucher to low and very-low income families, singles, senior citizens, disabled and handicapped individuals. 

Eligible applicants will be issued a "Housing Choice Voucher." Holders are responsible for finding their own suitable housing within the city based upon the size of their family and the requirements of the program. Click Here for more information on the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program.
