Welcome to DHIC


DHIC, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to the development of high-quality housing communities in the Research Triangle region of North Carolina. We offer housing opportunities where individuals, families and seniors can thrive by living in safe, beautifully designed communities that remain affordable and feature a wealth of resident services. Our Homeownership Center serves a vital role in the Raleigh community with a wide range of homebuyer education and counseling services.

Continuing to Create Communities

Progress continues on our Willow Creek community.  Located on Davis Drive in Cary, N.C., Willow Creek will offer 53 one- and two- bedroom apartments for active adults age 55 and over. Learn more about this up-and-coming community.

Washington Terrace Master Planning Underway

Last year, DHIC acquired the 25-acre community east of downtown Raleigh, which features 245 apartments built in 1950. Initial design master planning is beginning thanks to a generous kickoff grant from the Wells Fargo Housing Foundation, which invests in distressed areas to help revitalize neighborhoods. Our intention is to replace the 66 existing buildings in a methodical manner over the next few years.

The City of Raleigh is a key partner with DHIC in the civic engagement and master planning process. Mayor Nancy McFarlane continues to state the importance of affordable housing and the City’s role in offering high-impact services. Learn more about this project and share your voice.

Investing In The Future With Homeownership

Homeownership remains the bedrock of the American Dream and the foundation for strong, viable communities and neighborhoods. DHIC’s Homeownership Center serves as a one-stop resource to help first-time buyers. We have helped more than 700 area residents become mortgage ready, and provide lender and realtor options as well as obtain access to down-payment assistance programs such as those offered through the North Carolina Housing Finance Agency and the City of Raleigh.
