Founded in 1983, the Affordable Housing Management Association of East Texas (AHMA) is a non-profit organization representing companies and individuals involved in the ownership and/or management of affordable housing, particularly multifamily housing communities subject to Federal regulation. Private sector housing provides shelter to more low to moderate income Americans than any other housing program, and does so in developments that are well-maintained, well managed, and efficiently operated.
While private sector affordable housing is a true American success story, the management of these properties presents particular challenges not faced by conventional apartment operators. Affordable housing is highly regulated. Owners must be knowledgeable of key regulatory and compliance issues. Managers and supervisors must be highly trained in federal and state regulations, IRS guidelines, fair housing compliance, and complex procedures for reporting and occupancy - all in addition to the normal issues of apartment management.
Since the 1970s, AHMA members have been actively involved in federally regulated housing programs. Today, as the housing environment changes, AHMA continues to focus on all types of affordable housing including Low-Income Housing Tax Credits.
AHMA East Texas members are dedicated professional housing operators who:
- Provide safe, decent housing for families, the elderly, and the disabled;
- Manage with a spirit of humanity - identifying and serving the special needs of affordable housing residents;
- Comply with changing regulations, legislation, and court decisions; and,
- Learn the management techniques and procedures necessary to operate efficiently in a regulated environment.
AHMA East Texas members manage over 25,000 units of quality affordable housing in the East Texas area including Houston, Galveston, Beaumont/Port Arthur, Lufkin, Nagcodoches, and Bryan/College Station. Our members include owners, property management executives, directors of non-profit housing organizations, multi-site supervisors, site management personnel, product/service vendors, and regulatory agency employees.
