What_NowFRHA Scholarship Program

The FRHA Scholarship Program was created, as part of the Franklin Scholars program, to recognize graduating high school seniors who have excelled in academic achievement and community involvement.  We believe that many excellent students exist in our community but are unable to continue their education beyond high school due to financial challenges.  Donations have been received from local Franklin businesses and other FRHA partners to build a fund for these students. 

Graduating Seniors must participate in the Public Housing or Housing Choice Voucher programs.  To apply, interested students must complete the Scholarship Application.  Both printed and fillable versions are available.  Please note the application process for the 2014 graduating class will end in June of 2014.  For information on the next application period, contact us.


Housing Management

The FRHA currently manages 150 units of Public Housing over three sites. 

Berkley Court – A 75 unit family development on Cameron St. offering apartment homes ranging from 1 to 5 bedrooms.

Pretlow Gardens – A 40 unit family development on Pretlow St. offering one story apartments and two story townhomes from 1 to 3 bedrooms.

Old Town Terrace – A 35 unit family development on Bruce St. offering one story apartments and two story townhomes from 1 to 3 bedrooms.

17.jpgHousing Services

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 area(s).  FRHA provides partial rental assistance to tenants and regular Housing Quality Standards inspections.

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.  FRHA is working to reinvigorate its homeownership program and provide our residents with the opportunity to earn a home.

Our Public Housing, Housing Choice Voucher and Homeownership programs are only a part of what we do.  Our vision is to be a leader in providing housing services, homeownership, redevelopment and revitalization of communities.
