FAIR HOUSING COMPLIANCE COORDINATOR
Who we are
The Housing Authority of the City and County of Denver, (“DHA”) is a quasi-municipal corporation with a
portfolio of over 12,000 units and Housing Choice Vouchers (“HCV”), providing affordable housing to more than 26,000 very low-, low- and middle-income individuals representing over 12,000 families. DHA has transformed public housing in Denver, creating vibrant, revitalized, sustainable, transit oriented, and mixed-income communities of choice.
Denver Housing Authority’s mission is to serve the residents of Denver by developing, owning, and
operating safe, decent and affordable housing in a manner that promotes thriving communities.
DHA owns and operates over 3,900 conventional public housing units that are subsidized by the U.S.
Department of Housing and Urban Development (“HUD”), nearly 700 subsidized multi-family units, and about 200 other locally funded housing units. DHA also administers the federal HCV program, formerly known as “Section 8”. The HCV program combines and replaces the Section 8 Certificate Program and the Section 8 Voucher Program and makes it possible for low-income residents to live in privately owned rental
housing throughout the city. DHA acts as an agent for HUD in this program, making subsidy payments to the private property owners of HCV holders. DHA, on behalf of HUD, administers up to 6,900 vouchers.
DHA is governed by a nine-member Board of Commissioners appointed by the Mayor of Denver and approved by the City Council.
