Who is HADC?


"To provide sustainable and affordable housing as a platform to enhance lives."


In December 1955, the Housing Authority of DeKalb County (HADC) was established in accordance with state and federal law. The HADC operates a wide variety of programs that are designed to provide affordable housing solutions to DeKalb County residents, and to promote community and economic development.

The HADC is a committed partner in the community's effort to revitalize neighborhoods and foster economic development, as well as to provide quality, affordable housing. Although affordable housing is its primary mission, the Authority knows that housing cannot function in an environment that is not viable nor can those we serve reach their full potential if our community's economic condition does not continue to improve.

Programs and services administered by the Authority include the Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) Program, veterans housing assistance, resident support services, and multi-family tax exempt bonds. In addition, the Housing Authority has established partnerships with local agencies and affiliates in order to provide support services to our residents and the DeKalb community at large.
