Renters

TRIP offers many apartments in the City of Troy. Apartments are located in different neighborhoods, and some have a subsidy attached to them. A subsidy is a payment against your rent, thus reducing your monthly rent to the landlord (TRIP). Subsidies are available to lower and middle income persons and families.

TRIP apartments are well-maintained, updated units with 24/7 on-call maintenance. Our applicant screening process is designed to attract and keep the best tenants and make good neighbors for everyone.

If you are interested in learning more about TRIP’s rental programs please view more information on our communities below, then find out How To Apply.
