Public Housing Eligibility

To be eligible to live in state public housing, a household must typically earn no more than 80% of the area median income. Income guidelines vary from year to year and region to region. Ask the Wilbraham Housing Authority what income guidelines are in Wilbraham (Hampden County region) or visit the Department of Housing and Community Development website.

To live in state-assisted elderly public housing, you must be at least 60 years old. If you are a person with a disability, you must meet certain criteria to be eligible for state or federal housing for disabled persons.
