Franklin Redevelopment & Housing Authority

Helping to make the Dream of Becoming a Homeowner a Reality.

FRHA's Programs

Welcome to

The Franklin Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FRHA) was founded in 1963. Mr. J.R. Howerton was appointed the first Chairman by City Council on December 23, 1963. The original mission of the Authority was to address the need for safe, decent affordable housing in Franklin and the surrounding areas.

Housing Choice Voucher Program

FRHA works with landlords and other property owners to administer Housing Choice Vouchers for up to 315 families. Homes are privately owned and located in the Franklin and Southampton surrounding areas. FRHA provides partial rental assistance.

Home Ownership Program

Homeownership for low income families is an important concept in Franklin. FRHA was approved by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for a homeownership program in early 2004.

Public Housing Program

Our Public Housing, Housing Choice Voucher Program, and Homeownership Program are only a part of what we do. Our vision is to be a leader in providing housing service, homeownership, urban development and revitalizing communities. Let us know how we can help You!
