Question About based on your income apartments?

Do you have to be employed to be eligible to move into a based on your income apartment? If you dont’t have to be employed, then what will rent most likely be? Or do you have to have some type of income, like child support for example. I am a single mother of a 2 month old baby, and need to find my own place. I know I could just call, but I would rather ask on internet first.Thanks.
