General Information:
Public Housing Public Housing is a program funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Its purpose is to provide safe, clean and affordable housing for families and individuals. YMHA manages five family communities and six senior communities along with a few scattered sites throughout Mahoning County. Our communities are more than just buildings. We provide activities, programs and services for comfortable living. Public Housing Applications may be taken at the Central Office, 131 W. Boardman Street, Youngstown, Ohio 44503, from Monday - Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., or any other YMHA satellite office. Once the Application is complete, you will be scheduled for a Briefing. During this process, you will be required to submit certain verifications for all family members, such as income, birth certificates, social security cards, landlord references and other information deemed necessary by our Application Specialists. Housing Choice Voucher Program The Housing Choice Voucher Program assists low-income families in Mahoning County to rent privately owned homes and apartments. The program is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). YMHA contracts with HUD as the local provider for Mahoning County. Under the program, a portion of the participants' rent is paid by YMHA to the landlord and the participant is responsible for paying the remaining portion. The choice of where to live is up to the participant, as long as the unit meets the requirements of the program. All units with a voucher holder in residence is inspected by YMHA to make sure it is in decent, safe and sanitary condition. YMHA maintains a Waiting List for all applicants for the Housing Choice Voucher program.  New applications are only accepted once the Waiting List is open.  When the Waiting List is open, instructions on how to submit an application are advertised in the local newspaper.  At the end of the application period, a random computer generated drawing selects applications for placement on the Wait List. YMHA contacts applicants by mail when their position has been reached on the Waiting List. At that time, an interview session is scheduled. Applicants must bring all required information with them to the interview.  Due to the large number of applicants on the Waiting list, there is no way to estimate how long an applicant may be waiting until their name is reached on the Waiting list. We receive many applications; therefore, it may take some time to reach all applicants with news of the status of their applications. Applicants are encouraged to call YMHA at any time to check their status. FAQ  How do I apply for the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program?
