Housing Choice Voucher Program

Housing Choice Voucher Program

The voucher Program offers the participants freedom of choice in finding a suitable privately owned housing unit. The unit selected must meet AMHA and HUD approved Housing Quality Standards (HQS).

Moderate Rehabilitation Program

In the early 1980's AMHA received funds from HUD that allowed us to contract with landlords who agreed to remodel / renovate their units. Each landlord signed a 15 year contract with AMHA to remodel / renovate their unit (s) and make them available to AMHA housing applicants. This program was called the Moderate Rehabilitation (MOD Rehab) Program.

Residents receive a voucher Residents DO NOT receive a voucher
Vouchers provide Tenant-Based subsidy. Resident CAN move with proper notice. MOD Rehab provides Unit-Based subsidy. Resident CANNOT move because they were not given a voucher. MOD residents are not eligible for a voucher.
If the resident moves out, they have a maximum of 60 days to find and be housed in a new unit. If resident moves out, the subsidy stops. The resident must remain in the unit to receive subsidy.
If a resident's AMHA authorized unit size changes because of an increase or decrease in family size, they may use their voucher to transfer to another AMHA approved unit of their selection. If a resident's AMHA authorized unit size changes because of an increase or decrease in family size, they will be put on a waiting list and notified of other MOD Rehab units with the correct unit size for their family.
AMHA may apply for new funding for these programs as it becomes available. No new funding has become available for this program for the past few years. 14 3-Bedrooms are in the current renewal.
