Auburn Housing Authority was awarded 44 Emergency Housing Vouchers (EHVs) funded by the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) of 2021 (Public Law No: 117-2) to provide rental assistance for individuals and families who meet one of the following criteria:
At risk of homelessness,
Fleeing, or attempting to flee, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, or human trafficking, or
Were recently homeless or have a high risk of housing instability.
EHVs help individuals and families find housing and remain stably housed long-term. Our agency has partnered with Alabama Rural Coalition for the Homeless (ARCH) to determine which individuals and families will be eligible to receive an EHV.
How to Apply
To be eligible for an EHV, an individual or family must meet one of the eligibility categories:
Lacks a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence.
Has an income below 30 percent of median family income for the area as determined by HUD.
Reasonably believes that there is a threat of imminent harm in their current residence.
To apply, contact Sabrina Betts at ARCH by calling 334-273-0668, and when prompted, select option 2.
