About Our Honorees

Delaware State Housing Authority

The Delaware State Housing Authority (DSHA), formed in 1968, is dedicated to providing quality, affordable housing opportunities and appropriate supportive services to low- and moderate-income Delawareans. In addition to its role as the State's Housing Finance Agency, DSHA is unique in that it also serves as a Public Housing Authority and acts as a Community Development and Planning Agency. As a Public Housing Authority, DSHA receives funding from HUD to own and operate public housing in Kent and Sussex counties, two of Delaware's three counties.

New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency

The New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency (HMFA) is dedicated to increasing the availability of and accessibility to safe, decent and affordable housing to families in New Jersey. In some cases this may mean working with traditional affordable housing developments, serving New Jersey's most needy families. In other instances it is working with First-Time Homebuyers, senior citizens, and/or the disabled in our special needs communities.

HMFA recognizes that housing is developed within a community context and works to create healthy, safe and vibrant communities. It is clear that housing and families both influence and are influenced by the communities in which they reside. To this end HMFA works to insure that their investments leverage existing community resources and enhance market value and community well being. Learn more at nj.gov/dca/hmfa

Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency

The Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency helps both renters and homebuyers find affordable housing. The agency was created by the state legislature in 1972. To give a sense of its impact, consider that during the last 45 years, PHFA has generated more than $12.5 billion of funding for more than 163,000 single-family home mortgage loans. It also has helped fund the construction of 127,447 affordable rental units and saved the homes of more than 48,600 families from foreclosure. PHFA programs are funded primarily by the sale of securities and from fees paid by program users, not by public tax dollars. Learn more at phfa.org.
