Improving the Lives of Greenville County Residents
For Over 40 Years
Established in 1974, the Greenville County Redevelopment Authority (GCRA) works to holistically improve and revitalize homes and communities in Greenville County. We focus on providing affordable housing, building safe, accessible neighborhoods, and offering grant and loan programs for businesses. Through community partnerships and administering funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), GCRA works to build a better quality of life for the citizens of Greenville County.
Greenville County has prepared a five-year Consolidated Plan for federally funded housing and community development programs, to cover activities from July 2015 to June 2019. In the Plan, GCRA describes needs for improved, affordable housing and shelter for homeless persons, public facilities, services, and infrastructure.
The County’s Consolidated Plan covers the cities of Fountain Inn, Greer, Mauldin, Simpsonville, and Travelers Rest, as well as all unincorporated areas of Greenville County. The City of Greenville prepares its own Consolidated Plan independently.
In addition to the Consolidated Plan, GCRA also prepares Annual Action Plans (AAP) and a Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Report (CAPER).
