Today

Our most recent acquisitions, Woodland Village, purchased in 2007; Abby Court in 2008; and Foxworth Condominiums in 2009, are small public housing communities. Woodland Village is located on Overland Heights with 27 units. Abby Court, located on Rehobeth Church Road, has 14 units and Foxworth, Condominiums, located on Thicket Lane, has 44 units.

The year 2011 saw completion of three large public housing projects. Through the use of Neighborhood Stabilization Program Grant funds, 20 condominiums located in two buildings were acquired at Foxworth by Greensboro Housing Authority in 2009 and 2010. Two buildings with 12 condominiums each were constructed on the property in 2011, bringing the total number of affordable housing apartments at Foxworth to 44. Foxworth’s grand opening was held onsite on May 6, 2011.

Greensboro Housing Authority (GHA) was awarded an Elderly/Disabled American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) grant in the fall of 2009, to modify three units and construct a new community building at Stoneridge. The new building is Greensboro’s first community center built to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) silver certification standards.

The modernization of Claremont Courts was made possible by the award of $5.58 million in Capital Fund Formula Grant funds pursuant to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The transformation of the public housing community provides 250 affordable housing apartments for over 700 low-income, handicapped and elderly Greensboro residents. The renovations include newly designed exterior facades for all apartments; the addition of a handicap-accessible community building that houses community meeting space, a kitchen, Police Neighborhood Recourse Center, and staff offices; and landscaping improvements throughout. GHA’s Capital Funds provided installation of 250 high energy-star-rated 15 SEER heating and cooling systems for the community. Through a partnership with the Tocqueville Women’s Leadership of the United Way of Greater Greensboro, a Born Learning Trail, an engaging path of interactive activities that helps parents promote language and pre-literacy skills, motor skills and school readiness for your children, will extend approximately 1,373 feet through the heart of the community and provide exercise equipment, play stations, and sidewalk graphics.
