The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) indicates that households should not pay more than thirty percent (30%) of their total annual gross income on rental and utility expenses. In response to this need, HUD provides funding to the Adams County Housing Authority and other qualified non-profit organizations to subsidize apartment rental expenses.
