We want to formally thank everyone that helped with the Framing Frenzy on June 8th.

DSHA partnered with Americorps, Habitat for Humanity, The Delaware Association of

Realtors, Home Builders Association of Delaware and others to frame the Wester family’s

new home on Legislative Mall, and to dedicate June 2016 as Homeownership month in Delaware.

Thanks to everyone including Governor Jack Markell, who spoke at the press conference to support the effort!

Promoting Homeownership in Delaware’s Downtowns!


Governor Jack Markell announced that in the weeks ahead, his office will release a series of videos highlighting the progress the state has made over the past eight years through the voices of Delawareans.

They will address ways in which the lives of Delawareans, and generations to come, are being affected by efforts to strengthen our schools, develop cleaner and more efficient energy , make the state a safer and more welcoming place for all people, improve recreational and cultural options and create  more economic development and opportunity.

In conjunction with Homeownership Month, the first video available below addresses the impact of an initiative administered by the Delaware State Housing Authority:  the Downtown Development Districts program, which has leveraged almost $10 million into $160 million in private investment across all three counties.

Through the DDD program, the state is encouraging private developers to re-invest in Delaware’s downtown areas. In Downtown Dover, as you’ll see below, the program already is helping support new, affordable homeownership opportunities.

We’re celebrating the benefits of homeownership throughout the month of June.

DSHA has continued to promote homeownership through low-cost mortgage loans, its down payment assistance programs and first-hand homebuyer tax credits.

Since 2009, more than 5,500 Delaware families have bought a home with DSHA assistance. Delaware’s homeownership rate has outpaced regional and national trends. Access to low rates and settlement assistance through DSHA helped sustain demand through the economic recovery.
