Groundbreaking for a Strong Neighborhood

On Friday, Director Eugene Young, Jr. joined Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County, New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer, Senator Darius Brown, and Rep. Franklin Cooke for a groundbreaking of a future home for the Newton family.

DSHA is proud to have supported this project through the Strong Neighborhoods Housing Fund (SNHF).

Since 2015, DSHA has received $14.2 million in SNHF funding to support community development and transform neighborhoods that are experiencing blight or other forms of stress, including high crime. The SNHF supports these communities by renovating abandoned, foreclosed, or blighted properties.

We look forward to seeing this project completed and welcoming the Newton family to their new home!

Forum discusses homelessness in Newark and statewide

Since the pandemic began in March 2020, state housing officials have provided motel vouchers to more than 6,000 homeless families at a cost of $25 million.

Some individuals do not have enough funding, they don’t have enough income, they don’t have that support,” Renee Beaman, director of the Division of State Service Centers, said during a forum on homelessness Sept. 21.
