I have lived in a number of places in the US.. along the east coast for the most part. I have heard all my life Phoenix is where I need to go with my lung concerns. and finances are a factor in all this as well. I am on a limited income as I am on disability and it is not very high. so with that in mind I have heard I can get HUD housing and it would help my quality of life as far as my health concerns fare.. now my concerns are do i need to live there to qualify for HUD first is it going to place me in an area I need to fear for my well-being. can anyone tell me ahead of time if this is going to be a bad idea or if it will be fine if I stay to myself which I do for the most part .
change is coming to me harder and harder but i know if i stay here one more year the cold is going to kill me. so i need to move before that happens and I have no choices left to make a move.
All responses will be considered and thanks.

Putting it bluntly, no. Police forces have been reduced, schools are lacking money, very few burger spots that aren't chains. That said, the suburbs of both cities offer some decent schools and sheriff's department protection.

Most pubic housing almost always has a local residency requirement. In some places waiting lists can be up to two years. Usually public housing is run by either a very large city or the county or both. Heres a link for Tucson.
