Since 1950 the DHA has led the way in improving housing and bettering the Dover community for its residents.
For over 60 years our goal has remained the same: to provide safe,
decent, and affordable housing for low-income families and senior
At the Dover Housing Authority, our philosphy has been more than simply
"brick's and mortar." We have worked diligently to provide our seniors
with programs and services that allow them to live independently and
avoid premature institutionalization. We have also pursued and funded
opportunities for our family residents to become self-sufficient and
free from public assistance.
By the year 2030, it is projected that nearly 20 percent of the U.S.
population will be 65 years or older - which will undoubtedly place
enormous pressure on housing authorities throughout the country. To
address this need, we must continue to develop partnerships with
organizations that share our goal of allowing seniors to remain in their
communities in a non-institutional setting. We must also continue to
seek innovative ways to provide affordable housing for needy families,
especially in these difficult economic times.
With a strong foundation in place, the Dover Housing Authority will meet
these challenges and continue to be in the forefront of our nation's
effort to assist our most vulnerable citizens.
By working together, we can make the Dover Housing Authority a better place in which to live, work and visit.
