Affordable Housing Clients

Offering rental units at below market rates, Affordable Housing is a great low-cost option for the general public. The apartment complexes in our Affordable Housing portfolio are owned by the St. Petersburg Housing Authority (SPHA) or our non-profit arm, RISE Development Corporation, with no reliance on federal funding. Residents do not receive housing subsidies, but rents are affordably priced, and applicants are subject to income restrictions.


If you live in one of SPHA’s Affordable Housing properties, you can find answers to your questions here.

  • Rent payments can be made in person at the Property Management Office at Disston Place Apartments, 3940 55th Street North, St. Petersburg, Florida
  • Residents can choose to complete an automatic withdrawal authorization at the Property Management Office to have their rent deducted from a bank account or charged to a credit card every month.
  • Residents may also mail payments to the St. Petersburg Housing Authority, P.O. Box 22949, St. Petersburg, FL 33742. Payments must be received by the 5th of the month to avoid late fees.
