Public Housing/ PBRA

AHA has 4 Public Housing/PBRA properties totaling 279 apartments in Albany, Georgia. Eligible applicants may choose where they would like to live. Residents pay about 30 percent of their monthly household income toward rent. Residents also have access to community development programs that assist with education, job training, youth programs, health, and wellness, as well as many other programs. The goal is to help each resident maximize their potential and, if possible, move back into the private rental market without assistance.

AHA is in the process of converting its Public Housing units to Project-Based Rental Assistance (PBRA) through HUD's Rental Assistance Demonstration Program (RAD). RAD is a tool that allows public housing authorities like AHA to make improvements to its properties and improve residents' lives, while also ensuring the features remain affordable to low-income families for the next 40 years. Although very similar, there are slight differences between the programs.
