Sep 13, 2017 01:24PM ● By Kathleen Maris

The Greenville Housing Authority recently launched a new website ( which features a new responsive design and more functionality. The new site also features new logos for the two nonprofits that manage the RAD & LIHTC developments: Greenville Re-development Corp (GRDC) and Greenville Area Housing Corp (GAHC).

Executive Director Ivory Mathews noted: “The Greenville Housing Authority’s website is vital to the agency’s ability to communicate to our residents, our commissioners & the public at large. Our website has new content added at least once per week, so the content is continually up to date and useful. We have added additional portals that facilitate online payments & more access overall to information quickly. In the future, we will continue to improve our website as technology changes. All residents, landlords, and the general public are encouraged to visit the site and sign up for upcoming events, news and more.”

Some of the new features added with the redesign include: 

  • Addition of TGHA’s two nonprofit organizations and their logos - Greenville Re-development Corp (GRDC) and Greenville Area Housing Corp (GAHC)

  • Addition of a Poll Question to allow online surveys for the public to complete
  • Share Feature - All pages of the website can now be “shared” using the “share widget” at the top of the website. Share options include sharing via email, social media, printing and more
