Section 8 Tenant-Based Assistance
NOT accepting new applications for Section 8 Assistance. We have a
limited number of vouchers and cannot accommodate more clients at this time.
Vouchers do become available
when a client chooses to leave the program, or is terminated for not
following the rules and regulations. These vouchers are then issued to the
person who is next on the waiting list.
The AHA jurisdiction consists of Augusta-Richmond
County, and there are restrictions on where you live with a voucher - for
example, the landlord must agree to be part of the program, the lease must
be approved, and the unit must be inspected to insure that it meets Housing
Quality Standards set by HUD.
The Augusta Housing Authority
maintains a policy that the voucher holder must reside in a unit at a
minimum of one year in order to move within or outside of the Augusta
Housing Authority jurisdiction. After the voucher holder has maintained
residence within the jurisdiction, he/she may move to any location that has
a housing authority. Please contact your case manager for other requirements
and restrictions on moving with continued assistance.
