Who is HADC?
HADC Mission Statement: "To provide affordable housing opportunities and meet the needs of those we serve."
In December 1955, the Housing Authority of DeKalb County was established in accordance with state and federal law. The Housing Authority of DeKalb County operates a wide variety of programs that are designed to provide housing solutions to DeKalb County residents, and promote community and economic development. The programs administered include: Public Housing, the Housing Choice Voucher Program, Affordable Housing, and Multi-Family Tax Exempt Bonds. In addition, the Housing Authority has established partnerships with other local organizations in order to provide support services to our residents and the DeKalb community at large.
The DeKalb County Housing Authority 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.
The Housing Authority's Board of Commissioners oversees the direction of the Authority. The Board of Commissioners hires the Housing Authority's Executive Director to manage day to day operations and the Authority's $70 million annual operating budget.
