Eligibility

HOME SOLUTIONS FOR LIMITED INCOMES

EHA is committed to serving eligible applicants and will not discriminate against any person on the grounds of age, race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, sexual orientation, marital status, or physical or mental disability.

EHA provides quality housing for those with limited incomes. Our rents are subsidized with federal money from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) so that those with limited incomes can live in quality housing. Therefore, income limits do apply for those wishing to participate in our programs.
