GDPM’s Occupancy Department processes applications for people who wish to live in GDPM’s asset management properties. To be housed in this program, applicants follow a two-step application process. Under the two-step application process, applicants complete an application so GDPM can make an initial assessment of the family’s eligibility and determine the family’s placement on the waiting list. Once the family is selected from the waiting list, GDPM determines final eligibility.
The Occupancy Department is responsible to ensure that applicants are provided information on asset management sites, and GDPM’s procedures and policies.
Applicants are required to submit documents relating to initial application to the asset management program to the Occupancy department. Documents include birth certifications, social security cards, driver’s license or state ID, prior landlords and DD214.

Planning and Development
The Department of Planning & Development(P&D) administers several grant programs including the Capital Fund. The public housing capital fund was established under the Quality Housing & Work Responsibility Act of 1998 (QHWRA) which amended section 9 of the Housing Act of 1937. Capital Fund dollars are awarded annually to an authority to perform capital projects necessary to maintain the integrity of its rental inventory. "Capital needs" include comprehensive repairs, major replacements, system upgrades and other non-routine maintenance work. The projects are awarded through a competitive bid process with program and construction oversight provided by the Planning and Development staff. GDPM is awarded approximately $5 million annually through this program and $1.3 million in the Capital Fund Replacement Housing Factor Fund.
Other capital fund activities performed by Planning & Development include acquiring or developing additional housing units, formally requesting the demolition or disposition of obsolete rental units, and mixed finance development. These activities leverage capital fund dollars to promote the agency’s strategic plan of adding 1000 new affordable units to its rental inventory.
Additionally, the Planning & Development Department administers several competitive grant programs including a $40 million HOPE VI revitalization grant, $1.5 million in Neighborhood Stabilization Program funds, $3 million dollars in Neighborhood Stabilization Program-2 funds, and $9 million dollars in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act dollars.
The Greater Dayton Premier Management has implemented several means with which to provide residents with additional security throughout the authority. The GDPM security department works closely with local law enforcement agencies. GDPM and the City of Dayton have entered into a contract that provides GDPM with 1 Sergeant and 2 Officers known as the GDPM/DPD Task Force. The unit provides proactive patrols at GDPM properties within the City of Dayton. The unit is also available to respond to various complaints of suspected criminal activity that is brought to the attention of the GDPM security department and subsequently forwarded to the Task Force.
Additionally a professional contract security company provides fixed post and courtesy patrols throughout various GDPM locations. Contract security also monitors the CCTV cameras for several hours each night that are located throughout the GDPM Hi-Rise Sites.
GDPM has also implemented a Security Tip Line. The tip line allows residents to call the Security Department 24/7 and provide details of suspected criminal activity anonymously. This number is 910-7620.
