A misguided rumor concerning Section 8 vouchers and the Atlanta Housing Authority (AHA) is being circulated via email. Several area social service providers appear to be the target of the email hoax.
The email directs Atlanta area service providers to, "…encourage and/or take (clients) to (AHA) and assist with the application process…."
NO VOUCHERS ARE AVAILABLE.
AHA is requesting that service provider NOT direct clients to AHA as NO VOUCHERS ARE AVAILABLE.
Attempts to reach the listed author of the email have been unsuccessful.
For future reference, any official announcement concerning housing vouchers would be made directly from AHA to service providers or would be available on AHA's web site.
If you have questions, please contact AHA's Housing Choice office at 404-892-8900.
