Reading Housing Authority Public Housing Apartments Franklin Tower is a 48-unit mixed-occupancy, high-rise public housing development that is owned and managed by Reading Housing Authority (RHA), and reserved for families in which the Head of Household is age 62 or older, or a person with a disability.  The property offers efficiency (0) and 1-bedroom apartments.  Apartments are modern, and include a stove and refrigerator.  Residents are permitted to have their own air conditioners installed by RHA for an initial and ongoing fee. This highrise is centrally located in the center of the City of Reading, which allows for immediate access to public transportation, healthcare and recreation.  In the first-floor community space, residents enjoy access to a big-screen TV, library, community activities hosted by local agencies and the RHA Wellness Program.  Many Franklin Tower residents receive assistance with a range of health, education, social and economic opportunities from the RHA Department of Resident Services in order to maintain optimal independence and self-sufficiency. Residents’ rent is typically equal to 30% of the household’s adjusted annual income, and includes water, sewer, trash, and utilities.  The property offers on-site laundry facilities and enhanced security features.  Small pets are permitted in accordance with the RHA Pet Policy. Parking is available on adjacent City of Reading streets and on a limited, assigned basis in a small parking area.  It is important to note that parking is not a fundamental service of the RHA public housing program.   Parking lots are patrolled by an outside contractor. Franklin Tower has 2 units that are fully equipped for persons with disabilities, in accordance with the Uniform Federal Accessibility Standards.  All units are accessible by elevator, permitting access to persons with mobility issues.  Reading Housing Authority is committed to ensuring equal access to persons with disabilities, and as such, will consider modifications to its properties under the Reasonable Accommodation Policy.

Apartment Checklist

Check For Waiting Lists

Most apartments have waiting lists. Search early and do not just settle on one apartment choice.

Contact Your Local Housing Authority

Housing authorities have many opportunities. Many do have closed waiting lists, but they may be able to provide other public housing resources.

Check The Federal Poverty Sliding Scale Guidelines

Check to see if you qualify for low cost or free housing by comparing the guidelines to your income records.
