The mission of the Jackson Housing Commission (JHC) is to assist low income families in securing safe, decent and affordable housing; create opportunities for resident and participant families to achieve self-sufficiency and economic independence; and assure fiscal and program integrity by all program participants.
Jackson Housing Commission Selected for Choice Neighborhood Planning Grant
The Jackson Housing Commission (JHC), in partnership with the City of Jackson, was awarded a HUD Choice Neighborhoods (CN) Planning Grant for the Downtown Jackson neighborhood. Jackson was one of 8 communities nationwide that received the CN grant in 2021.
Through the Grant, JHC and the City will work with local residents and a variety of community stakeholders to create a forward-looking CN Plan with a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion.
The Plan will be centered on redevelopment of JHC’s Reed Manor property, which includes 292 units of low-income housing. The CN Plan will seek to replace 100% of those housing units within the neighborhood, or in other areas of opportunity as part of new mixed-income developments.
