The Gwinnett Housing Corporation (GHC) was established in 1997 due to the overwhelming need for affordable housing in the area. GHC (formerly known as the Lawrenceville Housing Corporation, or LHC) is a private, non-profit 501(c)3 development organization with a focus on creating, rehabilitating, and operating quality affordable residential housing. This is done through the creation, revitalization, and preservation of housing stock in targeted neighborhoods with physical and economic reinvestment needs. As such, GHC is experienced in every aspect of housing, from construction and rehabilitation of for sale affordable housing to low-income homebuyers, to maintenance and operations of affordable rental housing.
Serving Gwinnett families since 2010, GHC has over 11 years of experience in rehabilitating homes for the purpose of increasing sustainable low-income home ownership opportunities. When considering past projects as well as projects to be completed by 2025, GHC has, or will have, invested over $40 million to the local economy through construction development. Whenever possible, GHC looks to award contracts to firms located in or owned by Gwinnett County residents.
