The Low-Income Public Housing Program (LIPH) is a national rental assistance program funded and monitored by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Its purpose is to provide decent and safe rental housing for eligible low-income families.
Participants in LIPH program may rent an apartment owned and managed by the Housing Authority City of Fort Myers. Tenants pay rent directly to the Housing Authority and may choose to pay either an income-based rent (which is equal to approximately 30% of their household income) or a fixed flat rent which is like market rent.
Applications are only accepted for those housing developments and bedroom sizes, with open wait lists. To see what developments, have an open Public Housing Wait List, please visit the applicant portal.
Each housing development has its own separate application. Make sure you select the application that corresponds with the housing development you are applying for.
It is very important that all applicants report any change in household composition, address change, income change or any other change promptly within ten (10) days of the change by completing a client update form.
