This program uses private sector housing to house low income families and provides a rent subsidy to the landlord on behalf of the family. Eastpointe Housing Commission administers 171 Housing Choice Vouchers throughout Macomb County. New clients must live in the jurisdiction for one (1) year before porting out.
Every housing commission adopts payments standards based on current funding.
Effective January 1, 2021, our payments standards are as follows:
1 Bdm =$780
2 Bdm = $1000
3 Bdm = $1,275
4 Bdm = $1,380
In addition, every housing commission adopts their own subsidy standards based on current funding. A subsidy standard is used to determine what bedroom size voucher the family will be issued. In accordance with our Administrative Policy, EHC assigns the Head of Household a bedroom of their own, and uses two (2) heartbeats per bedroom to determine the rest
PORTABILITY: The Eastpointe Housing Commission is currently BILLING ported in vouchers.

Our buildings are located on 3.5 beautifully landscaped acres of property, which include an on-site walking track, resting areas, multiple picnic patios, horseshoe pits, and a sheltered smoking area.
In the winter, our community offers a recreation area with a pool table, shuffle board and dart board. OR sit beside our fireplace and chose a book from our many bookshelves full of books. Perhaps you would like to relax in front of our big screen TV or play a game on the computer. If that doesn’t appeal to you, mosey on over to the beauty salon and get your hair done. Wherever your interests lie, you will always find something to do or someone to talk to at one of our friendly, comfortable common areas.
Our structures have secured entrances and the parking lots / building common areas are fully equipped with security cameras.
In addition, our buildings are 100% SMOKE-FREE! Residents are not allowed to smoke inside apartments or anywhere within the buildings. There are smoking lounges located outside the buildings for visitors who smoke.
