The Portsmouth Redevelopment and Housing Authority (PRHA) is committed to providing housing assistance to very low-income families, senior citizens, and disabled people.
Housing Choice Vouchers and Low-Income Public Housing are the two main housing assistance programs available through PRHA. Follow the links below to apply.
PRHA also manages a range of supportive services to help our residents live a quality life.
Housing Choice Vouchers – These vouchers cover a portion of the monthly rent for privately-owned apartments or homes. Unfortunately, our Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program has a lengthy waiting list; therefore, the waiting list is closed to acceptance of new applicants at this time.
Low-Income Public Housing – PRHA manages and maintains several rental properties for very low-income residents.
Senior housing –Several rental units are available in apartment buildings located throughout the city for low-income senior citizens.
