The Downtown Hershey Association (DHA) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation that was formed in February 2013 by community members interested in creating a group committed to fostering downtown revitalization. Today, the board is made up of more than two dozen community leaders representing small and large business, local government, civic organizations, and residents. By following the Main Street Four Point Approach to revitalization, the Downtown Hershey Association aims to enhance the beauty of the downtown, attract new businesses, and improve the quality of life for everyone with a walkable, bike-able, safe, and welcoming downtown that respects Hershey’s heritage.
