Help Affording Low Income Apartments in Baton Rouge

If you love the sound of living at Pine Square but aren’t sure if you and your family can afford the full rent, there are some programs in place to help with just that. These programs are funded by the federal government and can help you and your family afford low income apartments in Baton Rouge.

Did you know the federal government has a program called The Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCV)? It’s the federal government’s main program for helping low income families afford safe housing. You get to choose an apartment, single-family house, or townhome that suits your needs—and they take care of the rest. 

The East Baton Rouge Housing Authority (also known as the EBRPHA) receives the funds from the U.S. Dept of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). And that money is sent directly to your landlord for the amount you are approved for. The amount you have to pay varies and will be based on your application. Applying is simple and is based on things like your income, family size and composition, assets, etc.  

Do You Qualify?

To find out if you qualify and get the process started, contact your local PHA. They can give you all the information about the income limits for your family size in your area, and get you on the right track to getting settled into a home that you love and can feel good about living in!
