Housing Choice Program and Public Housing Programs are federally funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and administered for the City and County of Greenville by The Greenville Housing Authority (TGHA). The Greenville Housing Authority is not a federal department or agency. A public housing authority is a governmental or public body, created and authorized by the laws of the State of South Carolina to develop and operate housing programs for low income families and individuals.
The Greenville Housing Authority entered into an Annual Contributions Contract with HUD to administer the program requirements on behalf of HUD. TGHA is responsible to ensure compliance with federal laws, regulations, and notices and must establish local policies and procedures to clarify federal requirements and to ensure consistency in program operations.
The jurisdiction of The Greenville Housing Authority is the City limits of Greenville, South Carolina. However, under State law, TGHA is authorized to administer the Housing Choice Voucher and the Public Housing Programs throughout Greenville County with the exception of the City of Greer limits.
