for Section 8 Tenant-Based Assistance Program is
NOT accepting new applications.

At this time, the Augusta Housing Authority's Waiting List
for
Section 8 Project-Based Assistance Program IS accepting new applications.

The Section 8 Rental Assistance Program offers two types of assistance. Section 8 Tenant-Based Assistance involves vouchers that are used to subsidize rent in privately owned rental units.  In Section 8 Project-Based Assistance, the client may select from qualified units in specific housing in order to receive assistance. Clients who participate in the Section 8 Tenant-Based Assistance are also encouraged to participate in the AHA's Family Self-Sufficiency Program.

 The Augusta Housing Authority administers a total of 5,519 units in a combination of Rental Choice Housing Vouchers and site based assistance programs. The 5,519 units consist of:
3,328 Housing Choice Vouchers (Section 8 Tenant-Based Assistance), that include 42 Project Based Vouchers at The Highlands West and 44 Project Based Vouchers at Maxwell House Apartments, 2,064 Georgia HAP Administrators Program, 92 Project Based-Moderate Rehabilitation Program Vouchers and 35 Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH).

At this time, the Augusta Housing Authority's Waiting List for Section 8 Tenant-Based Assistance is NOT accepting new applications. When the list is opened, notices are placed in local newspapers and the information is given to community service agencies. To accommodate the large number of applications received when the waiting list is opened, AHA may use a special telephone number or other method to allow the most people possible to apply. Generally, when the list is opened it takes only a short-time, often just a couple of days, to get as many new applications as we can process and serve. To place an application, you do not need to bring any documents. However, when your name comes to the top of the waiting list, you will need at a minimum: Birth Certificates, Social Security Cards and Proof of Income for each family member.
