Greater Dayton Premier Management
Public Housing was established to provide decent, safe, affordable rental housing for eligible low-income individuals and families, the elderly and persons with disabilities. Because GDPM over the past several years has demolished outdated properties, acquired and rehabilitated existing properties and constructed new properties, public housing today is as good as or better than other rental housing in Montgomery County.
GDPM is well on its way toward the aggressive – but achievable – goal to add 1,000 new affordable housing units by 2017. Currently, GDPM owns and operates 2,700 units of public housing in small duplexes, family complexes and high-rise apartments for elderly families. GDPM serves approximately 16,000 people annually through its public housing program.
