The Housing Authority of the City of New Bern is a public housing authority managing affordable apartments in the New Bern, North Carolina, area. Our housing developments offer clean and healthy living environments for reasonable rents scaled by income. We also have a number of community empowerment and enrichment programs available. Discover for yourself how public housing can be an excellent stepping stone towards moving into your own home.
Established in 1933, construction of housing projects began in 1939. From 1940 through 1953, 579 apartments were built, with additional construction continuing well into the 1950s. In 1979, we added another inventory of housing units specifically for seniors. Currently, the Housing Authority consists of two developments: Trent Court and the New Bern Towers. Each community has its own charm and distinct qualities. We welcome you to visit our communities, and consider making your home with us.
Our mission is to provide a good place to live in a nice community
