Greetings. On behalf of Chatham County Housing Authority’s Board of Commissioners and Staff.
Affordable housing is needed more than ever before. Chatham County Housing Authority has taken a new direction to become more effective and efficient in our agency and program operations. It is our hope that you find our Website user friendly and that the information and resources provided are helpful to you.
The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program is the federal government’s major program for assisting very low-income families, the elderly and the disabled to afford decent, safe and sanitary housing for eligible families regardless of race, religion or political affiliation in the private market. Our Housing Choice Voucher program offers advantages and benefits for both program participants and landlords.
The Family Self-Sufficiency Program is a program that enables HUD-assisted families to increase their earned income and reduce their dependency on welfare assistance and rental subsidies. Program participants will have access to partners who assist with education, budgeting, job-readiness, and homeownership. Households gain the incentive of an escrow account that can be utilized to assist families striving to become self-sufficient. More information on this program can be found on the website.
It is important as a community to work as community partners to provide safe, decent and affordable housing for families in need.
Chatham County Housing Authority is committed to providing quality services to the citizens we serve.
