Enston Homes Foundation
About the Foundation
The trustees of the Enston Home Foundation have generously agreed to use the interest generated on the sale of the Enston Homes to establish the Enston Home Fund. These funds are donated to be used to benefit elderly individuals and their families in the tri-county area. For the purposes of this program, the Enston Home Trustees define elderly as 45 years or older.

Administration
Funds are administered by the Department of Housing and Community Development. Funds are awarded to nonprofit organizations with proof of nonprofit status and governmental agencies. Preference, however, will be given to nonprofit organizations. Funding will not be granted to individuals. 

 
Criteria
Enston Home funds may be used for:
  • Rental subsidies
  • Moving expenses
  • Construction and rehabilitation costs
  • Predevelopment costs, including acquisition of property and professional services (i.e., engineering, architectural, and environmental testing)
  • Transitional housing and utility assistance associated with the creation of affordable housing for the elderly

Please note:
Currently, funds are not available for this program. A notice will be published once funds become available.

In order to provide a certain amount of the security to the tenant, funding for subsidies may be requested for up to two years. Assistance may be provided only to elderly individuals and their families whose income falls below 30% of the
Area Median Income.
