WAITLIST APPLICATIONS INFORMATION

The East Peoria Housing Authority (EPHA) operates two housing programs, with funds from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development. We offer a Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program and a Project Based Voucher Program.

SECTION 8 HOUSING CHOICE VOUCHER PROGRAM

For this program, eligible persons rent from a private landlord on the open market.  The EPHA helps program participants pay the rent to their landlord.  To qualify, the household income must be below our income guidelines.  Each housing unit, whether it is a house, apartment or mobil home, is inspected for compliance with Housing Quality Standards (HQS).   Current funding permits participation of up to 195 households.  Landlords are responsible to screen potential tenants for suitability and are permitted to utilize their own lease agreement.  There is a Housing Assistnace Contract signed between the EPHA and the landlord.  To get assistance through the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program, interested persons must make an application when the EPHA is accepting them. (see the waitlist application information section for information about our application process) We do not have any emergency housing.

 

PROJECT BASED VOUCHERS

For this program, eligible persons are required to live in an apartment at the Leisure Acres Phase I apartment complex located in Sunnyland.  To qualify, the person(s) must be 55 years old or older and must have income below the income guidelines.  There are 35 efficiencies and 65 one bedroom size apartments in this complex.  The tenant is required to pay 30% of thier income towards their own rent and utilities with the EPHA subsidizing the remaining amount.  To get assistance through the Project Based Voucher program, interested persons must make an application when the EPHA is accepting them. (see the waitlist application information section for information about our application process)  We do not have any emergency housing.


Mission Statement:

  • The East Peoria Housing Authority provides an opportunity for lower income East Peoria residents to receive financial rental help, satisfying a basic need, and allowing for a greater quality of life for their family than their income would otherwise permit.
  • The East Peoria Housing Authority will provide resources and support to strengthen self-worth and reinforce self-esteem, ultimately benefiting the children.
  • The East Peoria Housing Authority will provide financial relief to the elderly and disabled who often live on fixed incomes, thus giving them the means to afford decent, safe and sanitary housing.
