Searching for a Home
Prior to searching for a home, voucher holders should review EOHA’s payment standards. EOHA’s occupancy standard is based on two persons per bedroom, regardless of age or sex.   Knowing the payment and occupancy standard will help guide your selection process.     

EOHA works in Landlords in the area to compile a list of apartments for rent to voucher holders. The EOHA does not assist with Security Deposits.  Click here to search for available rental properties.

Housing Choice Voucher Homeownership Program
The Housing Choice Voucher Program was created to assist individuals and families in becoming homeowners.

This is a six month series which is broken down into seven programs which cover the following topics:

  • Preparing for Homeownership

  • Understanding your credit

  • Creating and maintaining a good budget

  • What is a Real Estate Attorney and why are they important in your homeownership process

  • The lender, How to understand products and programs and how to choose the right lender

  • The Role of a Real Estate Professional

  • The Home Inspection process, why is Homeowners insurance a must? And what does it cover?

That is just a brief description of our course outline!

The program we offer runs in six month intervals.
We believe it takes six months of education and preparation for the homeownership process.
If you're serious about becoming a homeowner, then please contact us to learn more about enrolling in this valuable, life-changing program...and get closer to being in your own home!
