Message from Larry Russell, CEO

The Rocky Mount Housing Authority, (RMHA), has been and continue to be one of the best-operated housing authorities in the nation. Many of its community programs have received national recognition. In light of the fact HUD funding has been cut yearly, RMHA continues to meet most of it's internal financial needs. However, it is clear that funding from HUD is essential to the total operation of the Housing Authority.

Current plans are to continue seeking other funding sources to support the vast affordable housing needs in Nash and Edgecombe counties. Whatley Cove subdivision is RMHA's first major venture in providing homeownership opportunities in the area. Forty-eight (48) single-family 3 & 4 bedroom homes are the most attractive affordable housing units in the City of Rocky Mount.

Plans are to continue building more affordable homes in the future. Furthermore, RMHA will build twelve (12) 1 & 2 bedroom homes in the Happy Hill community with eight (8) of the homes being set aside for families with disabilities with the help of the City of Rocky Mount, NC Housing Finance Agency and South Eastern NC Community Development Corporation, Inc.
