Post Secondary Housing Assistance Program

The purpose of this program is to provide affordable housing assistance to qualified applicants in the form of rental payments for students who are pursuing a post secondary education.
The maximum amount allocated to each student will be $2,000 ($1,000 per semester). If documented need does not justify the entire amount, AHA may, at its discretion, award a lesser amount.
- Must be Alaska Native/American Indian - Certificate of Indian Blood (CIB) and/or tribal enrollment verification is required as part of the application submission.
- Must reside in, or if currently in school, have resided in the Aleutian/Pribilof Islands Region immediately prior to submitting an application.
- Must have a household income less than 80% of the area's median income as established by HUD; participants will be required to provide documentation to verify the determination of low-income status.
- Must be a full-time student accepted into a college or technical school; and maintain a minimum 2.0 GPA and submit transcripts following each educational term to maintain eligibility while in school.
- Must submit a letter of acceptance from their chosen institution or a satisfactory explanation as to why such letter is not available at the time of application.
AHA will use the Adjusted Gross Income as defined for IRS form 1040 to determine income eligibility. Household tax returns for preceding years will be reviewed. The entire household income must be considered for determination. Income verification documents may not be more than 180 days old at the time AHA determines eligibility.
Scholarship awards will only be available to assist students with housing and payments will be dispersed directly to the Landlord, as provided on the rental agreement or to the School/Technical Training Institutions as stated on a campus account summary.
