As the AHA website continues to grow, new features and added enhancements are continually being added. The site is now fully searchable with a custom search page powered by Google. For the Spanish speaking members of our community, the site is now accessible in Spanish. For landlords there is HAPCheck and for tenants there is now the possibility to pay your rent online! And finally, our community members now have online access to a secure, anonymous form to disclose any troubling activity on or around AHA property. We call this Silent Witness and it can be found here.
HAPCheck is now live!
Coming October 1st, AHA has introduced a new system to allow HAP payments to be viewed online. Using this new system, called HAPCheck, Landlords will be able to view the previous 18 months of HAP payments. HAPCheck is a centralized, secure, web-based system for producing on-line statements for all owners. HAPCheck eliminates the need for creating paper payment statements, saving time, eliminating excess paper usage and improving owner access to data.
HAPCheck is now live!

Inside the new website you will find a customized map of Albany detailing all AHA housing locations, a new form to allow local businesses the chance to work with AHA, a new FAQ section to answer some of most frequently asked questions as well as a whole host of refinements over our previous website.
