Rental Communities

DHIC owns 3,224 apartments in the Triangle area and beyond. Each of our properties features a beautiful design and exceptional quality in diverse neighborhoods. We currently have 27 family communities, 20 seniors communities, and two supportive housing communities in our portfolio, serving over 4,100 adults, seniors, and children.

All of our apartment communities have income restrictions and offer lower rents than typically found in the marketplace. We also have communities that are age-restricted. Finding affordable rental housing is challenging and most of DHIC’s properties have waiting lists or no availability.

DHIC hires private property management companies to maintain and manage our homes. We take pride in the homes we build and are committed to keeping our apartment homes safe, attractive, and inclusive.

If you are interested in finding DHIC rental housing, please keep in mind:

Each DHIC property has its own leasing office that manages the application process and waitlist. If you have questions about unit availability, eligibility, or the application process, please contact the leasing office of each property. DHIC does not maintain this information in its corporate office.

All adults, 18 and older, who will be living in the household must be listed on the application and will be subject to a credit check and criminal background check.

An application and non-refundable application fee ranging from $20-$35 is required for each property. The application fee of $20-$35 is used to cover the cost of credit and background screening and is not refundable after the application is submitted. Information cannot be shared across properties.
