Is there public housing anywhere for people that are other than low-income?

There is of course "affordable housing" in Britain but that is not public housing, but private.

Brazil also has a similar "affordable housing", it's called Minha Casa Minha Vida, the program leaves it up to the private sector to promote social housing. Since 2009, the federal government invested $98 billion in the Minha Casa Minha Vida program with a view to contracting over 4.5 million housing units

^ sure, but British "affordable housing" is not social housing. People on low incomes would not be able to come anywhere near those prices, which are meant rather for the middle class (which needs help because of the high proportion of new developments in London being luxury property).

In Brazil Minha Casa Minha vida is divided into three levels, the first for Extreme poverty, the second for low-income, the third for the middle-class.

1st level: Families earning up to R$ 1,800 monthly
Second level: Families earning up to R$ 6,000 monthly
third level: Families earning up to R$ 9,000 monthly (that's 3000 US dollars)

^ so how does it work? Sounds interesting. First-time buyers are being helped by the government with a interest-free loan to buy a home from the market? Or with a financial aid that they don't even need to pay back? Another way it could be done would be to have the public money co-finance the projects together with the private developers, and the public authorities would then sell / rent their part of the appartments by their own criteria.

There are needs for social/public housings because of the private sectors! Now they are going to loot the country thanks to the government.

In Chile there's no social housing like in Europe (where you rent for a lower price), but you get a +- USD 25000 to 30000 subsidy to build your own house , dubbed 'Casa Sencilla' . I'm sure there are rental social housing in the city (like for immigrants in need of aid and Chileans in more dire conditions) but I don't know anything about it really, plenty of the old apartment blocks built by Allende are used for those, but you're better off with the 'sencillas'... Allende's apartment blocks are tiny, with thin walls, people freeze in the winter.

There is of course "affordable housing" in Britain but that is not public housing, but private.
well as i stated above, Swedish and Danish public housing for example is just rental apartments owned by the local council. Anybody can live there, but since its mostly in less desirable areas there tend to be people with lower income.
We have no income restrictions.

These areas was built because new apartments was needed because of high immigration in the 70s.

I could apply for an apartment in any of these areas if i wanted to, even if i had a high income.

In some of these Public Housing apartment areas you also have to fulfill some requirements meaning that you must have a good enough income so that you have at least 4675 SEK left when the rent has been paid.

^ indeed, there have been enough examples for me to learn that there *is* public housing that isn't also social housing. It is probably remains a rare occurrence but you were right to raise the issue.

You get a subsidy and a low interest rate loan.
