  • Is it a H.U.D approved apartment or is it like an income based apartment?

  • If you get food stamps then you just need to go talk to apartments that take low income families.

  • It's not easy. They'll put you on a waiting list unless it is a serious emergency, and even still, some people wait forever to get help from the government to get an apartment.
