You Have a Choice!

Return to the redeveloped community

You have the option to become part of the renewed St. Paul’s area. People First USI will help qualified residents temporarily move and then return to the redeveloped St. Paul’s area once it is built.

Relocate to other assisted housing communities

Residents can move to another Norfolk public housing community such as Young Terrace, Calvert Square, Oakleaf Forest, Diggs Town, Partrea Midrise, Huntersquare Midrise, Bobbitt Midrise or Sykes Midrise. People First can help find a new community and assist with your transition.

Take a Housing Choice Voucher

You can move to new housing outside of the St. Paul’s area using a Housing Choice Voucher. Managed by the Norfolk Redevelopment & Housing Authority, Housing Choice Vouchers help low-income individuals and families find housing they can afford.
