PARTNER with US to BUILD STRONGER COMMUNITIES!
The Affordable Housing Alliance (AHA) is a leader in the field of affordable housing in New Jersey. The Alliance has demonstrated excellence both in the construction of new multi-family apartment communities and the rehabilitation of existing family and senior apartment projects.
The Alliance also serves as an Administrative Agent to several of the properties we help develop. We have a dedicated team of property managers and maintenance staff who help solve any issues that may arise as they work diligently to keep each property as beautiful 30 years down the line as it is the day it was built.
Our residents are the hard-working backbone of the community; Teachers, veterans, social workers, and retail professionals are the people we create and administer homes for, so by becoming our partner you are in fact supporting those who matter most.
