Roxboro Community Redevelopment Corporation is a 501 (c)(3), non-profit affordable housing organization.  RCRC was established in 2019, and formed by the seven-member board of commissioners of the Roxboro Housing Authority.

U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is no longer funding additional public housing units in Person Co. Because federal funds are only for 210 units currently managed by the Housing Authority, RCRC was formed to provide more affordable, decent, sanitary housing for low- and very-low income citizens in Roxboro and Person Co. (N.C.) through grants, donations, fundraising and in-kind gifts and services.

Just as Roxboro Housing Authority has transformed public housing in the area, RCRC plans to do the same, starting with the Green and Walker St. area.
