AHA Receives "High Performer" Rating from HUD

The Area Housing Authority has once again been named one of the nation's best run housing authorities. Exemplary program management and efficient program implementation earned AHA the designation of a "High Performer" from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program.

This is the 14th consecutive year that the Area Housing Authority has earned this distinction.

To earn the rank of “High Performer” from HUD, the Agency demonstrated compliance with HUD regulations and proved efficient use of funding and resources while serving the greatest possible number of needy residents. All aspects of the Section 8 program administration were subjected to HUD audits and inquiries to quantify the Agency’s performance. A total score of 90% is required to be ranked as a high performing agency.

2016 Area Housing Authority Receives Clean Financial Report

The Area Housing Authority’s financial numbers are accurate and meet generally accepted accounting standards, a new independent audit report shows.

The Area Housing Authority Board of Commissioners, accepted the Audited Financial Statements for Fiscal Year 2016 from the accounting firm of Davis Farr LLP. The auditors released an unqualified report noting that the financial statements “present fairly, in all material respects, the respective financial position” of the AHA as of June 30, 2016.

The audit report is presented each year to show how the housing authority’s finances fared in the previous fiscal year.  “The audit is performed for the purpose of forming an opinion on the financial statements that collectively comprise the agency’s basic financial statements,” stated Michael Nigh, Executive Director for Area Housing Authority.

The Area Housing Authority’s commitment to meeting and surpassing all Department of Housing and Urban Development standards has resulted in the agency’s multi-year rating as a “High” performer.
“This audit report shows we have a strong financial foundation,” stated Nigh, “and use our resources wisely.  I commend staff for their high standards and prudence in financial matters in this uncertain economy.”
