Purpose
The Hopewell Redevelopment and Housing Authority was established in 1939. Our governing body is a seven – member Board of Commissioners appointed by City Council. Funding is secured through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and rental income. The Hopewell Redevelopment and Housing Authority (“HRHA”) is a government agency governed by the Code of Virginia, Section 36-4 to provide safe, decent, sanitary and affordable housing to families of low-moderate income and to further housing opportunities and encourage economic development. The HRHA receives federal funding from the Office of Public and Indian Housing to own and manage 360 units of public housing and administer 503 (373 tenant-based and 130 project based) housing vouchers through the Housing Choice Voucher Program.
