ABOUT OUR PROGRAMS
PUBLIC HOUSING (PHA OWNED HOUSING)-These developments were erected by programs financed through Project Notes and Bond Issues secured by pledges of annual contributions by HUD and the housing units. The debt is retired by annual contributions from HUD under the terms of the annual contributions contract.
This program is designed to provide low-cost housing within the Town of Elkton. Under this program, HUD provides funding via an annual contributions contract (routinely 50%) of PHA’s annual operating cost. These funds, combined with the rental income received from tenants, are available solely to meet the operating and debt service expenses of the program.

HOUSING CHOICE VOUCHER PROGRAM (SECTION 8/HCV)-EHA currently administers a program of rental assistance payments to private owners on behalf of eligible low-income families under Section 8 of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1974. The program provides payments covering the difference between the maximum rental on a dwelling unit, as approved by HUD, and the amount of rent contribution by a participating family (generally 30% of income), the Housing Authority earns an administrative fee for each voucher assisted under this program. We currently assist 40 families under this program.

All modernization funds replace or materially upgrade deteriorated portions of existing Authority property. The Housing Authority completes a 5 year plan to determine modernization needs.
