The Mitchell-Lama housing program provides rental and cooperative housing for middle-income tenants. For both state and city-sponsored Mitchell-Lama developments, tenants must meet eligibility requirements including income, family size and apartment size. Additionally, each development sets its own restrictions.
Public Housing is a federally funded program in which state chartered authorities develop and manage public housing developments, subject to federal, state, and local laws and regulations. Tenants in public housing are entitled to an administrative grievance process administered by the local housing authority before they may be evicted.
