The Capital Fund Program


The Decatur Housing Authority (DHA) receives federal funding from the US Department of Housing and Urban  Development (HUD) each year for development, financing, and modernization of public housing developments and for management inprovements at all DHA properties.  This funding is called the Capital Fund Prorgram.


The DHA conducts meetings with staff and residents in the preparation of a ducument called the PHA Plan.  This PHA Plan is a guide to the DHA's policies, programs, operations, and strategies for meeting local housing needs in our community.  It is through this plan that the DHA receives its Capital Funds.  This plan includes an Annual Statement and a Five Year Action Plan.  The Annual Statement includes work items that have been determined to be top priority and the Five Year Action Plan outlines lower priority work items.  This plan also includes performance and evaluation reports for the previous year's funding. 


The PHA Plan is available to the public and can be viewed in our Policies section.




The DHA Received a $34 million HOPE IV grant from HUD to do demolition and new development on the footprint of what was formerly known as Longview Place.  The new develpment is now called Wabash Crossing and there have been three phases of construction completed.  This development is a mixed finance project which includes a combination of Public  Housing units, Low Income Tax Credit units, Housing Choice Voucher units, and Market Rate Units.  There is a leasing office onsite and you can reach them at 217-428-4630.
