The Department of Real Estate and Housing's mission is to improve the quality of life for residents in the City of Wilmington by:

  • increasing the supply of affordable housing;
  • improving housing markets and the quality of existing housing stock; and
  • promoting self-sufficiency, and engaging in activities to revitalize City neighborhoods.

The department plans, allocates and prudently administers federal, state and local resources for the benefit of City residents and the neighborhoods in which they live, involving residents to the greatest extent feasible in decisions that affect their lives. In carrying out this mission, the department partners with other City departments, government agencies, the private sector and other organizations that share its goal.
