Portability provides an opportunity for HCV tenants to relocate to another housing authority outside of the initial housing authority’s area or jurisdiction. Greenville Housing Authority (GHA) territory includes Hunt, Rockwall and Rains counties.

If you are a Greenville Housing Authority client requesting to relocate or transfer (port) outside our area or jurisdiction, you must first contact your GHA HCV Specialist to determine if you are eligible for transfer to a different housing authority.

Voucher holders who are currently with another housing authority wishing to relocate to Hunt, Rains or Rockwall counties will need to follow the two steps below first:

  1. Contact your current housing authority counselor to begin the transfer (portability) process. Provided you are eligible, your current housing authority will issue you a voucher to allow you to transfer or port here.
  2. Your current counselor will need to email your paperwork to: carol.p@ghousing.org as email is easily tracked. Your current PHA may choose to mail your paperwork to the Greenville Housing Authority, attention PORTABILITY at 4417 Oneal, Greenville, TX 75401-7012 or fax your papers to 903-455-1881. The preferred method is email. Once your paperwork has been received by Greenville HA, we will contact you by mail with an appointment date. All paperwork must be received from your initial housing authority before an appointment will be made for you to attend our briefing.
