Text Box: If there is a Section 8 house in your neighborhood that has occupants that are disruptive or a general nuisance, this should be reported. The Augusta Housing Authority (AHA) has strict guidelines concerning the owner’s responsibility and rules for the inhabitant’s. There are two manuals, one for the home owner and the other for the renter. These publications are not local rules but are mandated by HUD.  A good example of a problem that should be reported is the number of individuals living in a Section 8 house. A two bedroom house should not have more than four (4) occupants. If you see a house that is obviously overcrowded this should be reported. The occupant of a unit is also required to keep the yard and exterior of the house presentable. Any problem you may have with a Section 8 neighbor should be reported to Ms. SERINA ROGERS 706-312-3112. Do not hesitate to report a problem.
 If you do not get satisfaction from Ms. ROGERS do not hesitate to call her executive director Mr. JACOB OGLESBY at 706-312-3158.

The Housing Authority of the City of Augusta, Georgia (better known as Augusta Housing Authority or AHA) is located in  Augusta-Richmond County, Georgia. AHA was created in 1937 to provide safe, sanitary housing for low income families. Olmsted Homes was the first public housing constructed  in Georgia under the Housing Act of 1937. Today, the Augusta Housing Authority is the second largest Public Housing Authority in the State of Georgia and helps to provide housing for about 14,000 individuals. The agency owns and operates 2,769 units of Conventional Public Housing and assists families with over 5,600 units of tenant and site based Section 8 vouchers.


The Housing Authority is governed by a Board of Commissioners, who are appointed by the Mayor. The Board of Commissioners meets monthly at the Reid Administration Building. All meetings are open to the public.


The Housing Authority operates under the supervision of the Department of Housing and Urban Development. It is evaluated annually through the Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS), a method used by HUD for judging the successful operation of a housing authority. Each year, the Augusta Housing Authority is a HIGH PERFORMING Authority in scoring for both their Section 8 (SEMAP) and Public Housing Programs. It is mostly due to those scores, the Housing Authority is eligible in competing for grants from Federal and State sources. Many of the  award winning programs that enhance the lives of AHA residents are funded through those sources.


The Housing Authority does not discriminate against race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability and familial status in housing or employment. For more information on applying for Section 8 or Public Housing, follow the link Applying For Assistance. AHA does not have funding to provide emergency shelter. The Augusta Taskforce for the Homeless and other area agencies within Augusta, Georgia may be able to assist persons with immediate needs.
