2017 marks the Everett Housing Authority's 75th year of operation. The agency was created by an action of Everett City Council, in order to address “a shortage of safe and sanitary dwelling accommodations in said City of Everett available to persons of low income at rentals they can afford.” Up to this day, EHA has remained intently focused on expanding the supply of affordable housing for low income persons residing within our service area. Our mission statement is tied to this obligation, as well as several other commitments:
The Everett Housing Authority leads the community in developing and providing safe and affordable quality housing for Everett’s diverse low income families.
We value: Our clients, our professional and dedicated staff, our community partners.
Here is a breakdown of EHA’s current programs and the approximate number of participant households as of 9/1/2016:
- Section 8 Tenant Based Vouchers -- 2,067
- Public Housing -- 288
- Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) Project Based Voucher Program – 333
- Project Based Voucher Program – 472
- Affordable/Tax Credit Units – 427
EHA is excited about the future, as we continue to develop affordable housing options within Everett --and outside of the city limits as opportunity permits-- in collaboration with area stakeholders and investment partners.
