The Middletown Public Housing Agency (MPHA) provides Housing Choice Vouchers Only. The Middletown Public Housing Agency does not own or maintain other project based subsidized housing units.
Housing Choice Voucher Program
This is a tenant-based Section 8 program. Section 8 rental vouchers helps individuals and families by paying the landlord the difference between what the individual/family can afford and the actual rent for the unit.
In this program the qualified household has the responsibility of finding their own housing to rent .Which may include single family homes, townhouses, apartments, duplexes and mobile homes. The program participant can choose any housing that meets the requirements of the program. Such housing is not limited to units located in subsidized housing projects.
A housing subsidy is paid to the landlord directly by the public housing authority on behalf of the participating individual or family. The individual or family then pays the difference between the actual rent charged by the landlord and the amount subsidized by the program. This form of assistance is portable and stays with the qualified person in the form of a Section 8 certificate or voucher allowing the qualified person to move without loss of housing assistance.

When the waiting list is open notification goes out to residents through various means of pubic notice such as the local newspaper. Interested parties may also contact the Middletown Public Housing Agency at any time to find out if the waiting list is open.
