Facts and Figures

What is Public Housing?
Public housing was established to provide decent and safe rental housing for eligible low-income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities. The Spartanburg Housing Authority (SHA) serves approximately 722 Public Housing units located in sixteen (8) communities throughout the City of Spartanburg. SHA’s Public housing comes in all sizes and types, from duplexes, garden style apartment and townhouses in various bedroom sizes to high-rise apartments for elderly families. SHA also has accessible units for individuals with disabilities.

Nationwide, there are approximately 1.2 million households living in public housing units, managed by some 3,300 housing agencies. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) administers Federal aid to local housing agencies (HAs) that manage the housing for low-income residents at rents they can afford. HUD furnishes technical and professional assistance in planning, developing and managing these developments.

In December of 2011, HUD awarded $7,387,804 to renew funding to 49 homeless programs operating in South Carolina. $3,447,141 went to Upstate counties including Spartanburg. The funding was earmarked to ensure these housing and service programs would remain operating in 2012. They are considered a critical part of the current administrations plan to prevent and end homelessness.
