Project-Based Housing Voucher Program is provided in partnership with Wilhoit Properties, owners of Greenfield Apartments in Laurinburg, NC. The 48 unit housing complex receives rental assistance payments (project-based vouchers), for income-eligible residents. In addition to the rental assistance, resident families are offered supportive services to help them become economically self-sufficient.
Tenant-based Housing Choice Vouchers increase affordable housing choices for eligible families. Families with a tenant-based voucher choose and lease safe, decent, and affordable privately-owned rental properties. Once a family finds a unit that meets their needs, the unit meets the housing quality standards, the rent is reasonable, and the unit meets other program requirements, the PHA executes a HAP contract with the property owner. This contract authorizes the PHA to make subsidy payments on behalf of the family. If the family moves out of the unit, the contract with the owner ends and the family can move with continued assistance to another unit.
The Family Self-Sufficiency Program (FSS), in partnership with Laurinburg Housing Authority (FSS administrators) is offered to Greenfield residents only in which their employment and educational needs are analyzed to develop goals or an Individual Training & Service Plan (ITSP). As an incentive, participating residents are able to accrue money, set aside in an escrow account, which they can receive upon successful completion of the program.
