Our Communities
Established as the Commonwealth of Virginia’s first housing authority in 1938, the Portsmouth Redevelopment and Housing Authority (PRHA) has been at the forefront of the state’s affordable housing industry.  In the years thereafter, PRHA was responsible for the creation of over 1,600 affordable housing units within the City of Portsmouth.  Today the agency continues its mission of providing decent, safe and affordable housing to Portsmouth residents and is working to create vibrant and sustainable communities throughout Virginia.
