Every resident of Greenville County deserves a chance to own or rent a home that fits within their budget.

Established in 1974, the Greenville County Redevelopment Authority (GCRA) works to improve the living conditions of the county’s residents by building new homes, rehabilitating existing homes and improving the infrastructures within communities.  We believe every resident in Greenville County deserves a chance to own or rent a home that fits within their budget.

While affordable housing is the cornerstone of a healthy community, strong community partnerships make it possible for GCRA to conduct beautification and public works projects such as improving streets, installing sidewalks, community lighting plans, drainage and sewer improvements, and community greenspace, which are important assets of a safe and beautiful community.

Investing in Greenville County to Create Thriving, Diverse Communities

To create engaged and active communities, we believe there is an important connection that must happen between families and community partners. We strive to support the links between neighborhoods of families and our schools, churches, nonprofits, and local businesses. We do this through:

Neighborhood Revitalization

To create healthy, active communities we first start by creating safe, affordable neighborhoods so all Greenville County residents have a place to call home.

Economic Development

We believe no community can truly thrive without economic success and the opportunity for jobs. We offer many resources for small, local businesses within Greenville County.


GCRA awards sub-recipient grants for community organizations and groups. These grants help fund programs for our citizens like after-school care and services for the homeless.
