Housing Improvement

The Housing Improvement Program (HIP) is committed to providing safe, adequate and affordable housing for the Charlottesville community and the surrounding area. HIP works with a range of community partners to combat various housing inequalities by both renovating existing structures and raising money for new housing. Through our continued efforts, we hope to raise the standard of living in the Charlottesville area by helping to provide residents with safe and adequate shelter.
