About Us

The Spartanburg Housing Mission Statement

Spartanburg Housing develops and provides affordable, quality housing options and programs that promote self-sufficiency.


At the end of the 1930s, the City of Spartanburg was moving out of the Great Depression and looking toward a brighter future. City leaders met to discuss ways to deal with the various “slum” areas in the City and to develop workable plans to provide decent housing for thousands of low-income residents who were living in sub-standard communities. A plan was formulated and on October 2, 1939, members of the newly formed Housing Authority of Spartanburg and the Spartanburg City Council agreed to commit $800,000 for the creation of affordable housing in the area. On September 10, 1940 the Authority broke ground for Tobe Hartwell Courts, the first public housing units in Spartanburg.

 Public testimony can be heard on the proposed changes and oral comments will be received from interested parties.




The ACOP is the PHA's written statement of policies used to carry out the housing program in accordance with federal law and regulations, and HUD requirements. The ACOP is required by HUD, and it must be available for public review [CFR 24 Part 903]. The ACOP also contains policies that support the objectives contained in the PHA's Agency Plan.


All issues related to public housing not addressed in this ACOP are governed by federal regulations, HUD handbooks and guidebooks, notices and applicable state and local laws. The policies in this ACOP have been designed to ensure compliance with the consolidated ACC and all HUD-approved applications for program funding. The PHA is responsible for complying with all changes in HUD regulations pertaining to public housing. If such changes conflict with this plan, HUD regulations will have precedence.

The Lease


The PHA may modify its lease from time to time. However, the PHA must give residents at least thirty (30) days advance notice of the proposed changes and an opportunity to comment on the changes. The PHA must also consider any comments before formally adopting a new lease [24 CFR 966.3].


After proposed changes have been incorporated into the lease and approved by the Board, each family must be notified at least 60 days in advance of the effective date of the new lease or lease revision. A resident's refusal to accept permissible and reasonable lease modifications that are made in accordance with HUD requirements, or are required by HUD, is grounds for termination of tenancy [24 CFR 966.4(l)(2)(iii)(E)].


SH Policy

The family will have 30 days to accept the revised lease. If the family does not accept the offer of the revised lease within that 30-day timeframe, the family's tenancy will be terminated for other good cause in accordance with the policies in Chapter 13 of the ACOP.

Schedules of special charges and rules and regulations are subject to modification or revision. Because these schedules are incorporated into the lease by reference, residents and resident organizations must be provided at least thirty days written notice of the reason(s) for any proposed modifications or revisions and must be given an opportunity to present written comments. The notice must be delivered directly or mailed to each tenant; or posted in at least three conspicuous places within each structure or building in which the affected dwelling units are located, as well as in a conspicuous place at the project office, if any, or if none, a similar central business location within the project. Comments must be taken into consideration before any proposed modifications or revisions become effective [24 CFR 966.5].

After the proposed revisions become effective, they must be publicly posted in a conspicuous manner in the project office and must be furnished to applicants and tenants on request [24 CFR 966.5].

SH Policy

When Spartanburg Housing proposes to modify or revise schedules of special charges or rules and regulations, Spartanburg Housing will post a copy of the notice in the central office and will mail a copy of the notice to each resident family. Documentation of proper notice will be included in each resident file.
