Working in partnership.
The Aleutian Housing Authority (AHA) was allocated over $3 million from the U.S. Department of Treasury for the implementation of the Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) program on behalf of our partner Tribes. The ERA program provides up to 12 months of financial assistance to eligible renter households that are struggling to pay rent and utilities due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Aleutian Housing Authority Receives Emergency Rental Assistance
AHA is currently working on a partnership with the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation (AHFC) that will allow for our Tribal Citizens to apply for these funds using their convenient and user friendly, online portal. To access the portal, you MUST have access to the internet, a valid email address, and cell phone with texting capabilities. ​We understand that this option will not work for everyone.

AHA and AHFC - Working on a partnership

AHA will work directly with those households using a paper application process to ensure that everyone who is eligible has access to these funds. 
What if I don't have access to the internet and email?

If you are able to apply using the AHFC portal and would prefer to use that method, please feel free to do so. For more information, or to access the portal, please visit their website:  For direct assistance, simply call or text “relief” to (833) 440-0420 (toll free). AHFC will be accepting applications beginning on Tuesday, February 16th, 2021. 

Using AHFC's Portal
Applications will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. AKDT on Friday, March 5th, 2021. 

If you are unable to apply using the AHFC portal, or if you would prefer to apply directly to AHA using a paper application method, we are here to assist you! We are finalizing the details for the administration of this new program and will be announcing those details very soon.  Please keep checking back for updates.
