The City of Vicksburg Community Development Housing Department has dedicated itself to meeting the housing needs of very low and low income families including those with special needs since 1994. The Housing Department has developed means of informing and educating our potential homebuyers to help make the American Dream a reality through homebuyer education workshops, credit counseling, and our homebuyer counseling program.
The City of Vicksburg housing department has successfully completed numerous affordable housing projects. We have worked closely for many years with USDA Rural Development, Mississippi Home Corporation, Mississippi Development Authority, Vicksburg-Warren Habitat for Humanity and Housing Urban Development to locate funding opportunities available that will assist our citizens to meet their dream of home ownership. We have also worked very closely with the University Of Southern Mississippi Institute of Disabilities to assist in providing homeownership for the disabled.
The City of Vicksburg Housing Department has proudly assisted in providing over 190 affordable homes, inside the city limits. Because of our affordable housing grant funding, we are able to help our residents become productive tax payers and happy homeowners.
