General FAQs

Are You Part of the City of Danville Housing Department?

DNDC is an independent nonprofit organization that works to improve quality of housing in targeted neighborhoods by repairing homes in distressed neighborhood to provide quality rental and homeownership options in near distressed communities in the city of Danville.

We do not. Danville Redevelopment and Housing Authority gives out Section 8 vouchers. 

When we have inventory, we rent. Check out our page for available properties.

We buy homes that need a little tender love and care and repair them and put them on the market for homeownership.  As a non-profit, we raise funds to keep homes affordable and attainable.
