Low income housing - public charge ? K-1

Hey everyone !

 

My husband and I are looking at some condos and we qualify for low income housing.

 

Im a u.s citizen, and my husband came on a k-1 visa, would he be considered a public charge ? 
 

On the USCIS website I saw that “housing benefits” don’t fall under Section 8. But is low income housing even considered Section 8? I think I’m confusing these two. 
 

We are not trying to get any payments from the government or anything like that, but this condo is about 100K less than other homes in our neighborhood🤪 and it would be much easier to purchase.

 

So would buying a “low income housing” have any bad side effects when my husband applies for his 10 year green card ? 
 

I’ve read some topics regarding this and I did some majority of people saying it’s fine, but a few did say the opposite, so I’m confused. 
 

thank you !

The USCIS web site seems to clearly indicate housing benefits are not considered as a public charge issue.
