Housing Stability Durham Housing Authority (DHA) exists to provide high quality housing for low- and moderate-income citizens of Durham. In pursuit of this goal, the agency strives to deliver the best possible service in a people sensitive fashion. All efforts revolve around the premise that the quality of our work directly affects the quality of life of those served.
Move In, Move Up, Move Out DHA offers several ways to help Durham residents who need to move into stable housing and work toward self-sufficiency. Through our public housing program, we assist families with low-cost permanent housing, resident support services and opportunities to enroll in job training, the family self-sufficiency program and much more. Through our Housing Choice Voucher program, formerly known as Section 8, qualified applicants can secure housing in the private market. For nearly all our customers, the dream of owning a home is available through our MoneySmart-Based Homeownership Program.
