Investing in family and community since 1950
LAWRENCEVILLE HOUSING AUTHORITY

The Housing Authority of the City of Lawrenceville (LHA) offers 
affordable rental units for low-income families. 

At this time, the Lawrenceville Housing Authority is not accepting new applications for public housing.
The Housing Authority of the City of Lawrenceville (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, LHA has developed 9 housing sites with a total of 212 public housing units. The Authority's operating fund consists of rental income and federal subsidies from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Most residents served by the Housing Authority are elderly and working families. 

For more detailed information about LHA and LHC programs, please visit the Housing Programs tab above.
Why Public Housing is Important
Lawrenceville Housing Authority knows that creating safe and decent places to live can have incredibly positive effects on a family's health, on a student's education, and on a neighborhood's overall attractiveness and viability. 

With so much at stake, the LHA makes it a top priority to provide safe,decent public housing options.

The Lawrenceville Housing Authority works collaboratively with community partners to provide resident services and programming and inform participants of community resources and other opportunities that will lead to greater independence, increased financial literacy, and systemic change.
