About the Program

Public housing was established to provide decent and safe rental housing for eligible low-income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities. Public housing comes in all sizes and types, from scattered single family houses to highrise apartments for elderly families. There are approximately 1.2 million households living in public housing units, managed by some 3,300 HAs. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) administers Federal aid to local housing agencies that manage the housing for low-income residents at rents they can afford. HUD furnishes technical and professional assistance in planning, developing and managing these developments.

In Greensboro, GHA operates 2,209 units of conventional public housing in 20 communities throughout the City of Greensboro, NC, ranging from a small 11-unit community to a large 430-unit community. Tenants’ rents are based on income with families typically paying between 30% and 40% of their adjusted annual income towards housing costs.
