Our Mission Statement
It is the mission of the AHA to provide affordable housing to eligible people within our community while creating and promoting opportunities for independence, self-sufficiency and an improved quality of life.
Ahoskie Housing Authority History
The Ahoskie Housing Authority established in 1976, provides stable, quality affordable housing opportunities for low and moderate-income families throughout the local community. Through the provision of public housing apartments the Ahoskie Housing Authority serves low-income families and individuals, while supporting healthy communities. The federal Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination in housing because of race, color, national origin, religion, familial status, gender, and disability. The Fair Housing Act ensures that all persons receive equal housing opportunities.
AHA has 136 units that consist of the following:
100- Low Rent Public Housing Units
20- USDA Farm Labor Units
12- Roanoke Chowan Development Corporation Units
4- Market Rate Units
What We Stand For
housing that is different than that provided others and do not subject a person to segregation or disparate treatment.
AHA does not discriminate
because of race, color, sex, religion, familial status disability, or national origin in the leasing, rental, or other disposition of housing-related facilities, including land, included in any development under its jurisdiction. We will not deny any family the opportunity to apply for housing, nor deny any eligible applicant the opportunity to lease housing suitable to its needs. AHA will not restrict a person’s access to any benefit enjoyed by others in connection with any program operated by the Housing Authority.
Regular Board Meetings begin at 12:00 pm on the fourth Tuesday of each month in the Multipurpose Room of the Administrative Office.
Our staff members are dedicated to our mission and consist of individuals with professional business experience and affordable housing knowledge. For information on who to contact with specific questions and concerns, please visit the Contact Us page.
