Albuquerque Housing Authority offers assistance to low income residents in the City of Albuquerque. AHA receives federal funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to provide these services.
In this capacity, Albuquerque Housing Authority is the owner and manager of approximately 950 housing units scattered throughout Albuquerque. These units provide decent housing for low income families, the elderly and disabled individuals at rents they can afford.
