“Housing is not just about building houses...it is also about transforming our residential areas and building communities.”
DCI Community Housing Services (DCICHS) is a Social Housing Regulatory Authority (SHRA) accredited Section 21 non-profit established in 2012 with the primary purpose of developing quality, affordable residential property for low-medium income households.
According to the Housing Act, Act 107 of 1997, institutional housing subsidies may not be administered by a local authority. DCICHS has therefore been established as the vehicle to access these subsidies for the development and management of social/rental housing in the Western Cape. The institution is geared at providing the following services:
Develop, own and manage affordable rental housing opportunities close to employment nodes, transport nodes, social amenities and related public services for households earning between R1 500 and R7 500.
Provide rental housing accommodation for people who do not qualify for subsidy and are unable to participate in the formal non-subsidised housing market.
Provide property management and turnaround services for low to medium density social or rental accommodation.
