Overview

The Housing & Neighborhood Services Department works with various partners to implement and oversee the City’s Housing Savannah initiatives that help provide and increase affordable housing opportunities, improve quality of life, and improve neighborhood conditions.   Department programs assist with the retention, repair, construction, development, and purchase of housing that is affordable to low- and modest-income persons.  Programs also assist with developing and implementing neighborhood improvement projects and plans.
