To provide drug free, decent, safe and sanitary housing for eligible families and to provide opportunities and promote self-sufficiency and economic independence for residents.
What We Do
The Housing Choice Voucher Program is the federal government's major program for assisting very low-income families, the elderly, and the disabled to afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing in the private market. Since housing assistance is provided on behalf of the family or individual, participants can find their own housing, including single-family homes, townhouses, apartments and manufactured homes.
The participant is free to choose any housing that meets the requirements of the program and is not limited to units located in subsidized housing projects.
Enterprise Housing Authority administers 190 Section 8 vouchers. Section 8 voucher properties can be searched here.
Public housing was established to provide decent and safe rental housing for eligible low-income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities. Public housing comes in all sizes and types, from scattered single-family houses to high-rise apartments for elderly families. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) administers Federal aid to local housing agencies (HAs) that manage the housing for low-income residents at rents they can afford.
EHA manages 150 public housing units at four locations: Nance Circle, William Donald, Damascus Apartments and Nell Court.
Housing applications are accepted on Wednesdays ONLY from 8:00am – 11:00am and 1:00pm – 4:00pm.
