The CHA opened the Lewis Scott Court Community In Eastover (67 apartments) in 1980 (See property directory on CHA website for more details).  They are all one story units. The complex is approximately 25 miles from downtown Columbia and is a 40 minute drive by car. There is limited bus transportation to the site.

Corollary question: If I accept housing in Eastover now, can I then transfer to housing that is located in the Columbia downtown area?

The answer is no. The CHA does not allow transfers in public housing unless there is a request for reasonable accommodations or a need for a change in bedroom size. 

I see the CHA is opening the waiting list for housing Eastover.  Where is that housing?
