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.
The government gives funds directly to apartment owners, who then decrease the rent they charge to low-income tenants. This form of subsidized housing assistance is available for low-income families and 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.
