The mission of the Delaware State Housing Authority is to efficiently provide, and assist others to provide, quality, affordable housing opportunities and appropriate supportive services to low- and moderate-income Delawareans.
The Delaware State Housing Authority was created in 1968 as a public corporation in the Delaware State Department of Housing. In 1970, DSHA became part of the Department of Community Affairs and later, in 1987, joined the Delaware Economic Development Office. Recognizing the critical services provided by DSHA, Governor Thomas R. Carper established DSHA as an independent authority in the Executive Department in 1998, with its Director, Susan Frank, reporting directly to the Governor as a member of the Cabinet. This historical step cemented the role of affordable housing as a key aspect of State policy.
Delaware State Housing Auth is a housing authority located in Wilmington, DE.
