State Housing Company (SHC)

State Housing Company Limited (SHC) was established originally as the Gold Coast housing corporation in 1956 under the Gold Coast Housing Corporation Ordinance 1955 (No.31).  In 1965, the name of the Corporation was changed to the State Housing Corporation (SHC) and mandated to “increase the availability of dwelling houses in Ghana”.

The corporation was to carry out this mandate by developing, building and managing public housing estates throughout the country.
Until the early ‘70s’ the corporation was a subvented organization acting as the government‘s housing construction arm. Its philosophy was to provide housing as a social service. It was not expected to recover market rates for its landholdings nor to pay carrying charges, and partly because of this, SHC was able to provide houses at below market price.
 On its part, the government provided funds for roads, pipe water services and electrical power supply which enabled SHC to build housing estates throughout the country. The cost of the services was in fact a subsidy which was not included in the government controlled prices and rents of the corporation’s houses.
In July 1995, SHC was converted into a Limited Liability Company under the statutory Corporations (Conversion of Companies) Act, 1993. It was duly registered under the Companies Code 1963 on July 10, 1995 and structured to operate as profitable and self-sufficient commercial enterprise.
