Who We Are

The Richmond Redevelopment and Housing Authority (RRHA) helps individuals and families transform their lives by providing quality housing and opportunities to develop self-sufficiency. This commitment to Richmond’s low income, senior, and disabled residents encompasses community revitalization and development that ultimately benefits all residents of the City.

A locally administered, and federally funded housing authority, RRHA provides real estate development, rental housing assistance, and property management of public housing communities for low and moderate-income families throughout the City of Richmond.

As the largest public housing authority in the Commonwealth of Virginia, RRHA serves over 10,000 residents and manages nearly 4,000 units. We also provide subsidized housing assistance through the Housing Choice Voucher Program to over 3,000 families.


Building Vibrant Communities


To be the catalyst for quality affordable housing and community revitalization.


We operate by the phrase iACT: Integrity, Accountability, Customer Focus, Teamwork.

Message from the CEO

I am honored to lead this organization as the Interim Chief Executive Officer and am proud of the commitment that each of our nearly 200 employees make on a daily basis. Central to our mission is the mandate to improve our communities—leave them better than we found them—and offer our families safe, affordable options to thrive. This is why we are here. We do this work because of the residents we serve. My focus is the continuation of our growth and development in the areas of people and the revitalization of our community.

Stacey Daniels-Fayson, Interim CEO

In 1940, Richmond City Council created RRHA as a continuation of depression-era federal program focused on combating blight and providing housing for the poor. Seven decades later, RRHA’s commitment to service prevails.
