EVANSVILLE HOUSING AUTHORITY

The Housing Authority of the City of Evansville (EHA) was legally formed in 1942, but long before our official incorporation, discussions were being held in the 1930’s over housing the low-income in Evansville, Indiana.  As part of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Public Works Administration, the inception of EHA began as Evansville was one of 35 cities to receive a public housing project grant for the development of Lincoln Gardens in 1937.

EHA’s mission was and continues to revolve around promoting adequate and affordable housing, economic opportunity, and a suitable living environment free from discrimination in Evansville, Indiana.  Our agency strives to expand the supply of assisted housing, improve the quality of housing, increase choices in assisted housing, improve quality of life and economic viability, promote self-sufficiency, and continue to ensure equal opportunities for all.

In November 2018, EHA successfully transitioned from traditional public housing roots to HUD’s Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program after five years of planning and implementation.  In a cooperative effort, EHA and its non-profit affiliate, Advantix Development Corporation, renovated and converted subsidy assistance for all 888 units of public housing to project-based vouchers.  The conversion ultimately secures EHA’s ability to provide affordable housing well into the future for our residents and the community as a whole.

EHA also administers 1,906 Housing Choice Vouchers (HCV), 31 Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) Vouchers, and 14 Homeownership Vouchers, ultimately serving nearly 5000 individuals throughout the City of Evansville at any given time.  Families and individuals receiving housing assistance have the opportunity to participate in self-sufficiency programs such as the Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program, YouthBuild Evansville, Caldwell YMCA, and Fulton Boys and Girls Club. In addition, EHA’s Resident Service Department works diligently with resident councils and community partners to offer our residents and members of the community a variety of workshops, health fairs, and food programs to name a few.

Thank you for your interest in EHA.  Please contact us if you have questions or would like to know more about the services we offer.

Just Released… 2019 Annual Report!

Message from the executive director

“Last year was a milestone that will go down in EHA’s history of accomplishments, and it will surely benefit residents for generations to come. In a cooperative effort, leadership and staff from the Evansville Housing Authority and its non-profit affiliate, Advantix Development Corporation, worked together to seamlessly close the last phase of our transition to RAD after five years of planning and implementation. This organizational transformation represented all 888 units of public housing converting to project-based voucher funding, in addition to over $30 million that was invested into buildings that make up EHA’s current portfolio of quality affordable housing in Evansville, Indiana.”
