The Allentown Housing Authority has a variety of housing options available for individuals and families and information on applying for one of those options is available here.
We do suggest that applicants review the Housing Programs and decide which building or community best suits their needs.
AHA works with a universal application form for all programs and applicants are required to identify their chosen site option on the application form. Applicants must complete and submit the application to the Allentown Housing Authority (AHA) offices at 1339 W. Allen Street, Allentown, Pa., 18102, along with documentation that include birth certificates and Social Security numbers for all family members expected to live in AHA housing. Other documentation that may be required includes an Alien Resident Card, Photo ID for any potential resident age 18 and over and Proof of Income.
To ensure the safety of all residents, a Criminal Background Check will be conducted on all potential residents over age 18 and convictions for drug-related and/or violent criminal activity. Failure to provide accurate information or providing intentionally deceptive information will be grounds to refuse or terminate housing assistance.
NOTE: It is very important for all applicants to maintain communications with AHA and provide updated information if your address or contact information changes or there are changes to the number of family members during the waiting period. Failure to comply means AHA cannot contact you if a unit becomes available.
Waiting periods for public housing are currently about 18 to 24 months.
