The Charleston County Housing and Redevelopment Authority was created March 15, 1972 by a Resolution of the Charleston Legislative Delegation and by a subsequent Ordinance of Charleston County Council dated July 18, 1972. It is a separate entity from the County of Charleston Government with its own Board of Commissioners.
Since that resolution, the Authority has grown to house 256 seniors on two sites; Joseph Floyd Manor and Brighton Place. An additional 143 families are housed in single family homes, 3 bedroom, many brick, many with garages, some with 2 or 2 ½ baths, all in substantial neighborhoods and subdivisions of Charleston County. Additionally, we serve over 850 families through providing the families with Section 8 Certificates and Vouchers. Twenty nine of our Section 8 families are enrolled in a special Family Self Sufficiency program designed to assist them in becoming totally free of all government subsidy in five years.
The Authority, in partnership with the Lowcountry Housing and Economic Development Foundation, a 501(c)(3) corporation, currently manages 39 single bedroom apartments in Lincolnville, and 14 single-family 2 bedroom houses north of Joseph Floyd Manor for seniors.
