Offices Closed to the Public Effective March 18, 2020
The health and safety of our residents, program participants, staff, and community are a top priority, and the AHACV is monitoring the evolving situation surrounding the 2019 Novel Coronavirus
(COVID-19).

Starting Wednesday, March 18, 2020, all AHACV offices will be closed to the public. This action is being taken in line with the instruction given by state and local officials.

Please note that staff are available to answer questions as we are still conducting business via telephone and email.

We will continue to assess the situation and keep you informed of any necessary changes to our programs. We appreciate your support and understanding as we adapt to this fluid situation.

In the meantime, we encourage you to visit the important links listed below for information on COVID-19. As a reminder, the best ways to prevent the spread of respiratory infections include:

· Staying home if you are sick. Sick people make well people sick.

· If you have mild symptoms, there may be no need to go to a medical
facility or to see a doctor.

· If you have questions, please call the clinic or your doctor before going in. If you do not have a healthcare provider, call the County’s Helpline, 211, for assistance finding support near you.

· Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

· Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

· Get immunized against the flu to protect yourself and your family, and reduce the potential strain on the healthcare system, which may be impacted by COVID-19 concerns.

AHA Receives "High Performer" Rating from HUD


The Area Housing Authority has once again been named one of the nation's best run housing authorities. Exemplary program management and efficient program implementation earned AHA the designation of a "High Performer" from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program.

This is the 18th consecutive year that the Area Housing Authority has earned this distinction.

To earn the rank of “High Performer” from HUD, the Agency demonstrated compliance with HUD regulations and proved efficient use of funding and resources while serving the greatest possible number of needy residents. All aspects of the Section 8 program administration were subjected to HUD audits and inquiries to quantify the Agency’s performance. A total score of 90% is required to be ranked as a high performing agency.


2020 Area Housing Authority Receives Clean Financial Report

The Area Housing Authority’s financial numbers are accurate and meet generally accepted accounting standards, a new independent audit report shows.

The Area Housing Authority Board of Commissioners, accepted the Audited Financial Statements for Fiscal Year 2020 from the accounting firm of Davis Farr LLP. The auditors released an unqualified report noting that the financial statements “present fairly, in all material respects, the respective financial position” of the AHA as of June 30, 2020.

The audit report is presented each year to show how the housing authority’s finances fared in the previous fiscal year.  “The audit is performed for the purpose of forming an opinion on the financial statements that collectively comprise the agency’s basic financial statements,” stated Michael Nigh, Executive Director for Area Housing Authority.

The Area Housing Authority’s commitment to meeting and surpassing all Department of Housing and Urban Development standards has resulted in the agency’s multi-year rating as a “High” performer.
“This audit report shows we have a strong financial foundation,” stated Nigh, “and use our resources wisely.  I commend staff for their high standards and prudence in financial matters in this uncertain economy.”
