Delaware State Housing Authority | Date Posted: Wednesday, January 15, 2020

CLAYMONT – Seven affordable housing projects statewide will receive a total of $1 million from Delaware’s Housing Development Fund (HDF), Governor John Carney announced today joined by Delaware State Housing Authority (DSHA) Director Anas Ben Addi, New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer, elected officials and community leaders from across Delaware.
The HDF, Delaware’s housing trust fund, was created for the purpose of providing affordable, decent, safe and sanitary housing to very low-, low-, and moderate-income households. Nonprofit developers or sponsoring agencies can apply for grants from the HDF to build new affordable housing, rehabilitate existing owner-occupied housing or for adaptive reuse of nonresidential buildings.
Six organizations will receive HDF funding in this round to create or rehabilitate a total of 24 homes around the state. Once the homes are complete, the organizations will then sell them to low- to moderate-income Delawareans.
“The organizations receiving HDF funding in this round are to be commended for their efforts to give more Delaware families a safe, affordable place to call home,” said Governor Carney. “With the HDF, the Strong Neighborhoods Housing Fund and the Downtown Development Districts programs, we are working hard to transform Delaware’s communities and increase access to affordable housing and homeownership.”
“DSHA relies on our partners to help us provide more Delawareans with safe, affordable housing, and we are grateful for the dedication these organizations have shown to this mission,” said DSHA Director Ben Addi. “With this funding, at least two dozen Delaware families will have the opportunity to become homeowners in communities throughout our state.”
Today’s announcement event took place at a property being renovated by 2 Fish Home Renovations, an HDF award recipient organization that provides employment and job development opportunities for formerly incarcerated adults in New Castle County.
2 Fish partners with the Delaware Department of Correction and Delaware Technical Community College to provide a five-week construction training course while the prospective employees are still incarcerated. Once they are released from prison, they are prepared to start work with 2 Fish. To date, 2 Fish has hired 20 formerly incarcerated individuals, including Jarrell Hawkins, who spoke at today’s event about working for the company.
“I am incredibly grateful for the opportunities 2 Fish has provided me,” said Hawkins. “The training and work experience I have received from this organization will help me as I search for future job opportunities and advance my career.”
2 Fish plans to use HDF funding to acquire and rehab four homes in the Overlook Colony neighborhood of Claymont and sell them to low- and moderate-income buyers.
“2 Fish Home Renovations is honored to be receiving this funding from DSHA,” said Keith Smith, president and founder of the organization. “While our core mission is to provide job development opportunities in New Castle County for formerly incarcerated individuals, this funding will also help our organization have a hand in revitalizing the town of Claymont by offering families in the area the chance to own their own home at an affordable price.”
The affordable housing projects receiving HDF funding in this round, listed by jurisdiction, are:
Claymont
2 Fish Home Renovations will receive $200,000 in HDF funding to acquire and rehab four homes in the Overlook Colony neighborhood in Claymont. The homes are located in a DSHA-designated Homeownership Opportunity Area. The new homes will have three bedrooms and one bathroom and have approximately 1,150 square feet of living space. Once the homes are completed, the organization will target two homebuyers with incomes between 51% and 60% Area Median Income (AMI) and two homebuyers with incomes between 61% and 80% AMI.
Dover
Milford Housing Development Corporation (MHDC) will receive $200,000 to construct four new homes in the Harmony Hill subdivision of Dover. Harmony Hill is a rural community located in a DSHA-designated Homeownership Opportunity Area. MHDC has completed roughly 25 homes in the vicinity of this neighborhood with many located in Harmony Hill. The new homes will have a minimum of three bedrooms and two bathrooms and have approximately 1,200 square feet of living space. MHDC is targeting two homebuyers between 61% and 80% AMI and two homebuyers between 51% and 60% AMI.
Ellendale
Sussex County Habitat for Humanity (SCHFH) will receive $140,000 to construct four new homes in and around the Ingram Village development in Ellendale. SCHFH owns all four properties – two are located in Ingram Village and two are located just outside the entrance to the development. This will be the fifth phase of this development for SCHFH. The new one-story ranch style homes will be approximately 1,250 square feet and include three to four bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms depending on household size. SCHFH is targeting two homebuyers with income at or below 50% AMI and two homebuyers with income between 51% and 60% AMI.
Milford
Central Delaware Habitat for Humanity (CDHFH) will receive $100,000 to construct two new homes in Milford. The proposed properties are unknown at this time, but CDHFH plans to target homes in Milford’s Downtown Development District area. The homes will include three bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms with 1,440 to 1,482 square feet of living space. CDHFH will target homebuyers with income between 51% and 60% AMI and will provide a 30-year mortgage at a 0% interest rate to all homebuyers.
Milton
SCHFH will receive $105,000 to construct three new single-family homes in the Town of Milton. SCHFH owns all three properties, and they are located at 210 Bay Avenue, 417 Pine Street, and 416 Cedar Street. The completion of this project will provide necessary affordable homeownership opportunities in Eastern Sussex County where there is currently a lack of affordable housing. The new one-story ranch style homes will be approximately 1,250 square feet and include three to four bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms depending on household size. After completion, each home will be sold to one of SCHFH’s partner families. SCHFH will target one homebuyer with income at or below 50% AMI and two homebuyers with income between 51% and 60% AMI.
Seaford
Diamond State Community Land Trust (DSCLT) will receive $120,000 for the construction of four new homes in the Governors Grant community located in Seaford. The targeted properties are located at 208, 210, 212, and 214 William Ross Lane. DSCLT currently owns all four properties. The homes will have three bedrooms and two bathrooms and will include mobility features such as zero-step entries and livable interiors to meet the needs of underserved populations such as persons living with disabilities. DSCLT will sell the homes for approximately $140,000, enabling them to reach households below 50% AMI. At least two of the four homes will be sold to households with members with disabilities.
Wilmington
Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County (HFHNCC) will receive $135,000 for the renovation of three townhouses in the City of Wilmington. Two of the three properties are located in one or more of DSHA’s designated Homeownership Priority Areas. HFHNCC owns all three properties, and they are located at 718 Bennett Street, 3004 N. West Street, and 35 E. 22nd Street. This project continues HFHNCC’s longstanding commitment to the Eastside of Wilmington. Two of the townhomes will have four bedrooms and one will have three bedrooms. HFHNCC plans to target two homebuyers with household incomes at or below 50% AMI and one homebuyer with a household income between 51% and 60% AMI. All three homes will be sold to first-time homebuyers.
