Housing is our purpose:
The Eastpointe Housing Commission is an independent entity governed by a five (5) member Board of Commissioners that are appointed for a five (5) year term by the Eastpointe City Council. The Commissioners are citizens of the City of Eastpointe who care about the community. The Commission is the body of the agency that makes policy, adopts budgets and assists in developing and fulfilling the mission and goals of the agency. They are not compensated to carry out these responsibilities and they are not employees of the Housing Commission.
Eastpointe Housing Commission (EHC) opened our first building, Erin Manor, a 64 unit elderly apartment building to low income, very low income, and extremely low-income elderly (62+) and near-elderly (50 -61 years of age) citizens on May 25, 1969.
In 1984, we opened a second building, a 100 unit apartment complex, Chester Berry Manor. The rent charged in these two (2) buildings is based on the resident's income. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) sets guidelines and provides additional funds to help support the improvement and maintenance of the buildings.
EHC also administers a 171 Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers. This program provides income based rent assistance to families in private sector housing throughout Macomb County.
Our mission statement:
To successfully house that portion of the elderly and near-elderly population that financially cannot afford to own their home or to live in private sector housing. We achieve this by enhancing the image of our housing within the community and offering a safe, secure, clean and comfortable environment, with compassionate, caring staff, thus creating a rental housing of choice, not necessity.
Our staff and Board are dedicated, compassionate, and committed to helping people be the best that they can be, beginning with clean, safe, affordable housing.
