HURC is a 501.c.3 Not For Profit Corporation which operates with a Volunteer Board of Directors. In May, 2015, the Greater Cincinnati Redevelopment Authority signed an operating agreement with the Board of Directors to manage the organization going forward.
In the past 42 years, HURC has been responsible for the rehab of over 700 houses, including 14 in since 2015 acquiringg inventory from the Hamilton County Landbank and the NCST. In the past, it also facilitated the transformation of Walworth Street in Columbia Tusculum from abandoned, blighted buildings with negative value to a current value of over $13 million in owner occupied housing units.
