Subsidized housing,  Commonly referred to as “projects.”  Instead of building more housing projects, subsidized housing is taking a turn towards providing vouchers for families to rent from private owners.  The amount of rent that the family pays is still based on income, and the remainder of the rent (up to a reasonable amount) is paid by HUD.  The lowest rent is $25 per month.
