Affordable housing is a main priority of the North Charleston Housing Authority. Our goal is to help provide low income families the opportunity to move from subsidized housing to home ownership.
The North Charleston Housing Authority operated the largest public housing complex in South Carolina, formerly known as North Park Village. Walls and barbed wire separated it from the community. The Housing Authority successfully secured a Hope VI award from the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. This multi-million dollar award was used for the demolition of North Park Village and the creation of Horizon Village, a new non-traditional neighborhood that includes modern, energy-efficient housing. This project is a glowing example of how the city and the housing authority have worked together to provide quality adequate housing for citizens.
We offer a variety of programs and services to help those in need of housing assistance.
