Public Housing has been transitioned to RAD!

Effective 12/1/17 the Gastonia Housing Authority no longer owns and operates the Public Housing communities of Cameron Courts, Weldon Heights, Mountain View, and Linwood Terrace.  All four properties have been sold to a limited partnership and will be managed by Vista Property Management.

These properties will still be subsidized through the Section 8 RAD Project-based Voucher Program.  The waiting list for the RAD PBV is closed while the properties are undergoing construction.  We anticipate the waiting list will re-open the RAD PBV waiting list around June 2018.

Those who previously applied for the Public Housing waiting list will automatically be transferred to the waiting list for the new RAD PBV program.
