About HRHA


The Harrisonburg Redevelopment and Housing Authority (HRHA) is a political subdivision of the Commonwealth of Virginia created pursuant to Title 36 of the Code of Virginia. An election was held in accordance with the act on November 8, 1955, at which a majority of the qualified voters of the City voting in such election approved the need for a Redevelopment and Housing Authority to be activated in the City. HRHA was duly organized on November 29, 1955, and it has been in operation since that date without interruption.


To promote adequate and affordable housing economic opportunity and a suitable living environment free from discrimination; and to foster redevelopment of blighted areas to ensure the economic, social and housing vitality of our community.


To treat all individuals with respect and dignity, to base all decisions on rational and provable data and to operate with efficiency in the delivery of all services.
