Facts About Us
The Greenburgh Housing Authority (GHA) is a Public Housing Authority operating in the Town of Greenburgh located in the central portion of Westchester County, New York. GHA provides decent and affordable housing in a safe and secure living environment for low and moderate-income residents. It is approximately 25 miles north of New York City.
GHA was created in 1952. The Housing Authority opened its first public housing development in 1961. This development funded by New York State Division of Housing and Community Renewal (DHCR) was located in the Fairview section of town. In 1973, a second public housing development funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) was undertaken in six separate locations. There are three sites located in the incorporated areas (villages) of the town (Elmsford, Ardsley, Tarrytown) and three sites located in the unincorporated areas (Hartsdale-2, Fairview).
The GHA also administers a Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program serving up to 421 families.
Once considered a small public housing authority of 246 units, the Greenburgh Housing Authority has remained dedicated to increasing our housing stock over the years. Currently we manage 131 conventional public housing apartments which are located at our Maple Street location, a new 70 unit senior housing complex (which replaces the previous 30 unit Manhattan Avenue senior site), an 8 unit affordable housing complex at Beamon Court and our newly renovated 85 affordable housing units located on scattered sites throughout the town of Greenburgh.
