The Aurora Housing Authority owns and operates 648 units of public housing in 5 apartment complexes and 59 scattered sites throughout the City of Aurora. These properties are owned, managed and maintained by the Aurora Housing Authority. Properties are located in both East and West Aurora, and are located in school districts 129, 131 and 204. Units range from studio apartments to 5 bedroom single family homes, and come in a range of styles including ranch, bi-level, modern and traditional.
Through funding provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development the AHA is able to offer these units to families earning less than 80% of the area median income for rents that do not exceed 30% of their adjusted gross income.
As a part of the AHA’s newly approved strategic plan, the AHA is now operating 3 unit tiers as part of the Signature Series Tiered Housing Program. This program creates 3 distinct levels of housing, each with increasingly appealing amenities and locations. As a family increases their income they have the option to move to a higher tier which will, as a part of their increased rent, provide the family with access to a portfolio of new amenities. Examples include hardwood flooring, ceramic floor tile, single family style homes, and larger unit sizes with more desirable floor plans, new cabinetry, granite countertops and professional landscaping.
