The Decatur Housing Authority was established in 1938 with its primary focus being on building housing for low income households. Over the years, the Housing Authority has expanded its focus to include the revitalization of the Decatur community as a whole through the renewal and redevelopment of substandard housing, as well as improving facilities in the downtown area. The Authority is now expanding its efforts to revitalize & redevelop into the newly designated Columbia Park area of East Decatur.
Today, the Authority's philosophy emphasizes not only providing much needed housing for the lower-income residents of our community, but also in providing our participants with the necessary tools to build better lives for themselves through self-sufficiency.
The Authority has also examined the need for diversity in the Decatur community and the inability of many of the people who work in our community to afford to live in Decatur. – less – More from ZoomInfo »
