HOUSING CHOICE VOUCHER PROGRAM 

AHA’s Housing Choice Voucher Program offers families, including elderly, disabled persons, veterans, and working families, the broadest range of choice in selecting where they live.  Using a Housing Choice voucher, families can identify quality housing anywhere in the city of Alexandria with the assurance that they will not have to pay more than 30 percent of their adjusted income toward rent. 

Property owners/landlords own and manage the properties and enter into landlord-tenant relationships with assisted families.
