Des Moines Municipal Housing Agency

The Des Moines Municipal Housing Agency (DMMHA) owns and manages Public Housing units for eligible low- and moderate-income families and individuals. All of these rental units are located within the city limits of Des Moines.

 
Public Housing General Information

The Public Housing program consists of rental units, within the City of Des Moines, owned and managed by the Department of Housing Services.  Upon acceptance of a unit, participants enter into a lease agreement with the Department of Housing Services and pay approximately 30% of their monthly adjusted income for rent. A full-time Service Coordinator is available at our five manors to ensure that residents have access to support services necessary for them to live independently.  The five manors consist of 390 units.  The manors are Royal View Manor (singles, elderly, disabled), East View Manor (elderly only), Southview Manor (elderly only), Highland Park Plaza (elderly only), and Oak Park Plaza (elderly only).

 

The DMMHA also has a limited number of scattered site units that can accommodate larger households (2 persons or more).
