PARTNERING FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING
The Greenville County Redevelopment Authority (GCRA) partners with housing development organizations to build new affordable housing for low- and moderate-income persons in Greenville County, outside the City limits of Greenville.
Annually, GCRA solicits applications from providers of affordable housing. Selections are made in compliance with all pertinent statutory requirements and furtherance of the County’s housing goals, indicated in the Greenville County 2015 – 2019 Consolidated Plan, including but not limited to preservation of affordable housing; community revitalization; green building technologies and practices; and ability to leverage GCRA funds with other funding sources.
The following were awarded grants and or loans by GCRA to construct affordable housing in Greenville County in 2019:
- CommunityWorks, Inc.
- Greer Community Outreach
- Habitat for Humanity
- Mercy Housing Southeast

On Monday, December 9, 2019, a groundbreaking was held on Stratford Street in Greenville to kick off construction of three new affordable single-family homes.
