HOME Solutions for limited incomes
Albuquerque Housing Authority is committed to serving eligible applicants and will not discriminate against any person on the grounds of age, race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, sexual orientation, marital status, or physical or mental disability.
AHA provides quality housing for those with limited incomes. Our rents are subsidized with federal money from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) so that those with limited incomes can live in quality housing. Therefore, income limits do apply for those wishing to participate in our programs.
A family's income can't exceed 50 percent of Albuquerque's median income, which the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has determined to be $30,800 for a family of four. The table shows the income limits used to determine eligibility.

Currently, the demand for housing assistance in Albuquerque exceeds our program resources.
This means that qualified applicants are placed onto our waiting list. Albuquerque Housing Authority recognizes the federal preferences for applicants who have been involuntarily displaced, those who have lost their home because of flood or fire, or those who need to move to avoid reprisals (like someone in a witness protection program).
Albuquerque Housing Authority also has established some local preferences for applicants which include preferences for those who are employed or going to school, or participating in welfare-to-work or job training programs, and for applicants who are disabled or elderly.
Applicants who receive one or more of these preferences may move ahead of those with no preferences on the waiting list.
