Subsidized housing is a social program run by HUD which helps low income families unable to afford regular housing. Other people that can qualify for subsidized housing are students and seniors.
Not everyone can live in subsidized housing though. You have to go to HUDs website and look up the requirements for qualification. Your income must be considered low income.
The next step is to fill out the subsidized housing application. You can find this form at the HUD housing agency. Bring along personal information and tax returns to proof your income.
When you are ready to look for subsidized housing, look for the free housing magazines that you sometimes see in the news stands. Grab a copy and check it out. It should give you a good idea about subsidized housing in your city.
If you have some friends that lived in subsidized housing before, you can inquire them about some recommendations. They can tell you whether or not a particular subsidized housing that they have lived in was good or not. They can also tell you what to expect from living in subsidized housing.

When you are about to move into your subsidized housing, you should do a thorough walk through of the house. Landlords need to provide safe and livable housing for their tenants. If there are any problems in the subsidized housing, you should tell the landlord to fix them.
