Due to the rapid spread of COVID-19, The Dunn Housing Authority will follow the recommendations of the State of North Carolina.


The Dunn Housing Authority is actively monitoring all information released about Coronavirus (COVID-19) and is taking precautionary measures to protect both our clientele and staff.


Our Precautions are based on guidance issued by the State of North Carolina and other reputable agencies including the CDC.


The Dunn Housing Authority is working to minimize public contact.


  • Our office will be closed to the public until March 26, 2020 (minimal)
  • Tenants will need to pay rent using the outside drop box.  Your receipt will be mailed to you.
  • All housing applications have been temporarily suspended.  
  • Residents have been notified of all Emergency Contact numbers by hand-delivery.   


Residents are encouraged to contact DHA staff by telephone or email.


All inquiries are to be directed to the Main Office 910-892-5076.  If you do not receive an answer, please leave your name, phone number and a brief message.  Someone will get back to you as soon as possible.


Residents are asked to notify staff of a suspected illness if a scheduled home visit or an emergency repair is anticipated.


All appointments can be rescheduled to a later date.


Due to our population of high risk tenants the Dunn Housing Authority will only perform emergency maintenance work in our units for a minimum of the next 14 days to limit the possibility of exposure by entering multiple homes in succession.  


The DHA Main office will be open for business VIA electronic communication, and telecommunication. 


Thank You for your cooperation in this matter.

Our Mission

The mission of Dunn Housing Authority is to meet our community’s housing needs by providing decent, safe and affordable housing.  It is our goal to promote self-sufficiency and personal growth.  It is DHA’s belief that housing is a basic right and the substance for a successful life.  We are committed to serving Harnett County and the City of Dunn in a manner that demonstrates professionalism, care and consideration. Debbie N. Woodell Executive Director

Safe & Affordable

Access to longer-term housing that is safe and affordable for women, men and their children is a critical part of empowering survivors to recover from their experiences with violence. When they are ready to leave a shelter, support for quick access to new safe and affordable housing can help to:

  • Decrease the burden of economic hardship, housing instability, and uncertainty as they focus on safety for themselves and their children, and other essential needs (i.e. employment, health, legal issues).
  • Create alternatives to remaining in abusive homes.
  • Reduce the risks of being re-victimized by abusers (National Alliance to End Homelessness, 2011).


Dunn Housing Authority is dedicated to equality and will never discriminate against race, gender, national origin, marital status, color, religion, or handicap.

Maintenance and Inspections

The Dunn Housing Authority maintenance staff responds to resident requests for repairs between the hours of 8:00 am and 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday.  If the work order repair is due to normal wear and tear the resident will not be charged.  If the resident, guest, member of the household or visitor is responsible for the damage or other problem a charge will be posted to the rental account of the lease holder.  All calls for work order repairs are done by priority and responded to in the order of urgency.  Residents should call 910-892-5076 to request a work order.  Repairs are not allowed unless a request has been made at the Administrative Office. Emergency calls are answered 24 hours a day, 7 days per week.   You may call the office and the answering machine will provide you with phone numbers for emergency calls.  Please call ONLY in case of an Emergency, otherwise you may be billed for the call.  Emergency calls are considered repairs that cannot wait until the next working day.  It is very important to provide your name, address, a call back number and the nature of the problem.  If the emergency is life threatening, immediately call 911. The purpose of Dunn Housing Authority unit inspections is to ensure that all units are decent, safe, sanitary and in good repair.  All units are required to be inspected at least once a year.  They may be inspected at any time by giving the resident a 48-hour advance notice.
