Dreaming of owning your own home? 

Path to Homeownership


P.R.I.D.E. (Program to Reinvest in Individual Development and Enterprise) provides homeownership opportunities for low-income families.

The Parkersburg Housing Authority offers a two-year lease-to-purchase program on selected housing throughout Wood County, West Virginia.

Families attend homeownership counseling classes and become part of the homebuyers club.


  1. Families must have at least three (3) persons in the household;

  2. Applicants must have an acceptable credit history or one that can be improved over the two-year period of program participation;

  3. Applicants should have a good rental history.

Required gross annual income will vary based upon family size and income guidelines set by HUD.

If you need further information or have additional questions regarding our P.R.I.D.E. Program, please contact Kyle Mann
