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 low-income citizens of Lawrenceville and the surrounding areas.
Since its establishment, LHA has developed 9 housing sites with a total of 212 multifamily housing units. The Authority’s operating fund consists of rental income and federal subsidies from the Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD). Most residents served by the Housing Authority are elderly and working families.
LHA is designated as a “high-performance agency” by HUD and is committed to serving all of our residents, participants, and the public in a manner consistent with the principles of respect, fairness, and equity.
Gwinnett Housing Corporation

Pathway Home Program is our supportive housing program that, through the partnership of several non-profit organizations, offers affordable rental options for families with children in Gwinnett County without a stable home for two years.
Welcome Home Program is a homeownership program that offers fully rehabilitated and newly constructed affordable homes to eligible low- to moderate-income home buyers.
