Mission Statement

On August 6, 1940, the Alameda City Council passed a resolution establishing the city's need for low-income housing and a housing authority to administer such programs. Since that time, the Housing Authority of the City of Alameda has provided housing assistance to thousands of low-income households through our Housing Choice Voucher and Project-Based Voucher (also collectively known as Section 8) programs and by developing and managing our own properties. We work with landlords and housing developers, and partner with various agencies to provide housing and related support services to as many eligible families as possible. AHA also provides services under contract to the City of Alameda for their CDBG, HOME, and other housing programs. We currently assist approximately 4000 individuals with housing and are actively working to grow the number of units available in Alameda so that even more low-income individuals and families can be served.

Our Vision
The Housing Authority of the City of Alameda shall continue to be recognized for creatively seeking ways to expand the availability of affordable housing throughout Alameda, for caring professional staff, and excellent service provided fairly to all.
