HUD funds several rental assistance programs: for example:

1. Public housing is low-income housing, that is actually operated
by your local housing authority
2. "Section 8" in which the housing authority gives the tenant a
certificate or voucher that says the government will subsidize
your rent payments and then you go find your own housing
3. Privately owned subsidized housing, where the government
provides subsidies directly to the owner who then applies those
subsidies to the rents he/she charges low-income tenants
