Housing Choice provides rental assistance to low-income families in the private rental market. AHA forms a partnership with families and landlords to provide housing opportunities throughout metro Atlanta. Through Housing Choice, thousands of families have secured quality housing in the neighborhoods of their choice.

NOTICE! The Atlanta Housing Authority Landlord Portal will be down for maintenance starting Friday, October 3 at 3:00 pm EDT running through Monday, October 6 at 7:00 am EDT. During this time, landlords will not be able to access the Landlord Portal.
TO REQUEST A RE-INSPECTION OR SUBMIT A SELF CERTIFICATION - send an e-mail with the property address and inspection ID (if available) to HCInspectionsMailbox@atlantahousing.org.
TO REVIEW HOUSING ASSISTANCE PAYMENTS (HAP) - HAP for the month of October will post to your bank account on or about the 1st and no later than the 5th, and you are encouraged to review HAP via the Landlord Portal prior to Friday, October 3 at 3:00 pm EDT. Thank you for your patience while we conduct this maintenance and for doing business with the Atlanta Housing Authority.
To access AHA’s landlord portal, please follow these steps:
Property Owner Briefing attendance is mandatory to participate in the HCVP. The briefing will provide an in-depth presentation about how to do business with AHA. You will leave with a better understanding of how to be successful as a landlord on our program.
AHA's jurisdiction is limited to specific zip codes within the city limits of Atlanta. For any property you would place on our program, you must be paying taxes directly to the City of Atlanta. If you do not pay taxes to the City of Atlanta, your property does not fall within our city jurisdiction, and we would not be able to do business with you.
AHA will verify that the prospective landlord and/or property manager (if applicable) has all mortgages current, is not in loan modification, has never been involved in fraudulent activities, and has no prior foreclosure activity with AHA while on the HCVP.
All properties must meet the AHA Inspections Standards to participate in the HCVP. Please review the Enhanced Inspections Standards Guide for a summary of these standards.
