Scattered Sites

 The Peoria Housing Authority has a total of 118 homes we categorize as “Scattered Sites” available through the public housing program with the Department of Housing and Urban Development. The Housing Incentive Program is designed to help low-income families rent affordable housing. The Scattered Sites are comprised of single-family homes, duplexes and apartments. They are located across the city of Peoria.

The Housing Incentive Program is designed to promote family self-sufficiency. That means we help you continue your education with the goal of future home ownership.

Current residents may transfer to our Scattered Sites through our Housing Incentive Program, which outlines the following preferences:

  • Put the utilities in their own names.
  • Be employed at least 20 hours per week and attend school 20 hours, OR
  • Be employed at least 32 hours per week.
  • Have a good history paying rent.
  • You may also qualify for the program if you are elderly or disabled.

Specific criteria are available for review with each application. To remain in the program, you must take proper care of the unit.

Rent is calculated the same as public housing. The rent for Scattered Sites is based on the family’s income at 30% of the adjusted gross income. A utility allowance is given for each home based on a yearly survey of average utility consumption.

If you are interested you may fill out an application to be placed on a waiting list.
