Thursday, January 17, 2019: The Augusta Housing Authority’s rental assistance programs continue to operate on the basis of funding that has already been appropriated through February 2019.  Because the shutdown is not expected to last beyond that time, the shutdown should not have any impact on our normal operations.  If the shutdown remains in effect, then an established contingency plan with all relevant stakeholders will be reevaluated at that time.

The Housing Authority of the City of Augusta, Georgia (AHA), is pleased to announce that the Conventional Public Housing and the Elderly Public Housing waiting lists will be open effective Tuesday, February 19th, 2019. Click here to apply.
