Lawrenceville Housing Authority (LHA) and GHC… what’s the connection?
The Housing Authority of the City of Lawrenceville (Lawrenceville Housing Authority, or LHA) was established on May 8, 1950, and was funded through the Housing Act of 1937 for the purpose of providing decent, safe, and sanitary housing to the low-income citizens of Lawrenceville and the surrounding areas. Since its establishment in 1950, and until 1981, LHA had developed nine (9) housing sites, encompassing a total of 212 public housing units. LHA is a quasi-governmental entity, and as such could not develop additional affordable housing outside of those 212 public housing units. So, in order to add to the available affordable housing stock, in 1997, the LHA board created an instrumentality for the sole purpose of developing new affordable housing throughout Gwinnett County, and that entity is the Gwinnett Housing Corporation (GHC).
