Leverage the Learning

On September 25, 2003, AHA and HUD executed AHA's Moving to Work agreement. The agreement allows AHA to replace federal rules with policies and a business plan tailored specifically to address long-standing problems in Atlanta's public housing based on lessons learned and best practices developed during the last decade.

The plan has been strengthened through extensive consultation with AHA customers, the private and business sectors, and other stakeholders and through the approval process of AHA's Board of Commissioners.
