Anthony Scott, Chief Executive Officer of Durham Housing AuthorityThree Quarters of a Century - 75th Anniversary
In 1949, Durham community leaders came together with a simple yet profound mission; to provide safe, affordable housing for all members of our community. As we embrace this significant milestone year, we reflect on the countless lives we've touched, the families we've housed, and the communities we've strengthened together.

Over the years we've faced challenges and celebrated triumphs, but through it all our commitment to serving Durham has been unwavering. With the support of the City of Durham and the passage of the historic Affordable Housing Bond in 2019, DHA is embarking on a new future for all Durham families. The new communities bring quality housing, and new amenities and become part of the fabric of growing Durham. This bold plan will result in over 2,000 additional units of housing in the downtown area for a variety of incomes, while at the same time preserving precious deeply affordable units.

In the coming months and years, we are investing millions of dollars into our existing communities to raise the standard and quality of life for our families. There will be a particular focus on incorporating climate-resilient strategies to help the environment as we incorporate these improvements.

As we look towards the next 75 years, we are inspired by the resilience and unity of our community. Together, we will continue to build a brighter tomorrow, where every individual has a place to call home and the opportunity to thrive.

Thank you for being an essential part of our journey.
