Greensboro’s Hope Court has received a Housing North Carolina Award for excellence in affordable housing. Located near the Koury Convention Center, Hope Court offers permanent, supportive housing for formerly homeless individuals, persons with disabilities, and working families.
The City’s Neighborhood Development Department provided a loan from its federal HOME program funds for the development of Hope Court; Affordable Housing Management (AHM) developed the housing community.
The excellence awards, sponsored by the NC Housing Finance Agency, annually pay tribute to outstanding home ownership, rental and supportive housing developments that serve as models for other communities. Hope Court received the award for its affordability, design, sustainability, community contribution, resident services, and creative partnerships. Awards were also given to developments in Charlotte, Greenville and East Flat Rock.
AHM, formerly known as Greater Greensboro Housing Foundation, is a private nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide quality affordable rental housing for low- to moderate-income households, including the elderly and disabled.
