Utilities

All residents are responsible for payment of their monthly gas and electric service. Tenants who reside in Scattered Site units are also responsible for payment of monthly water and sewer.

Rent

Residents have a choice to two types of rent: Income based or flat rent. Income based rent is based on 30% of the household’s adjusted gross income. A resident who opts for income based rent receives a utility allowance which is deducted from his/her rent. Flat rent is based on the size of the unit offered and its location. A tenant who chooses flat rent does not receive a utility allowance. Flat rent can only be offered at initial occupancy of the unit or during annual recertification.

Community Centers

There are two community centers that are available for resident to utilize: The Robert Mills Manor Community Center at 129-L Logan Street and Wraggborough Homes Community Center at 136 Alexander Street. These Community Centers are a great place for birthday parties, baby showers, family dinners and holiday gatherings. For further details, contact the AMP 30 Management Office at (843) 720-3986.

A message from our President/Chief Executive Officer:

The Housing Authority of the City of Charleston was born of action on December 18, 1934 by a vote of the Charleston City Council. However, the actual permission for such a "creation" came via statute in the South Carolina General Assembly in March of 1934.

We have come a long way in our society, our City and our personal relationships. Nevertheless, the need for Public housing still exists today. We have so much more to do before we can truly say, the job is done.

Donald J. Cameron
President/Chief Executive Officer
