The Housing Authority Supports All Harrisonburg Area Residents.
The Harrisonburg Redevelopment and Housing Authority (HRHA) is a political subdivision of the Commonwealth of Virginia created, following Title 36 of the Code of Virginia. As part of the act, a local election was held on November 8, 1955 and a majority of those voting in the election approved the need for a Redevelopment and Housing Authority to be activated in the City. HRHA was organized on November 29, 1955, and it has been in continually operation since that date.
HRHA assist eligible low-income families in our area with their rent through housing vouchers distributed by the Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD). Currently, HRHA receives 883 vouchers. Our voucher program serves the City of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County, including Bridgewater, Broadway, Dayton, Elkton, Fulks Run, Grottoes, Keezletown, McGaheysville, Mount Crawford, Penn Laird and Timberville.
