HOUSTON (FOX 26) - The Houston Housing Authority has opened its first development in a decade. The Independence Heights Apartments in northwest Houston provide affordable housing for mixed-income families, the elderly, disabled and military veterans.
A recent report from the National Low Income Housing Coalition ranked Houston as the fifth worst metropolitan area in terms of affordable housing options. Houston offers 19 affordable rental units for every 100 low-income households, according to the report.
The Independence Heights Apartments are open to residents earning 60 percent or less than the area median income. Residents can choose apartment units with one, two or three bedrooms. There are also two-story units with elevators available.
