Affordable Housing for Athens-Clarke County, Georgia


Our Mission is to provide secure, affordable, quality housing and resources which encourage and sustain independence for wage earners, elderly, and families.

Our Vision

The Athens Housing Authority looks at affordable housing differently than most people. We see affordable housing as a way to provide stability for families whether they are just beginning to set work and life goals or entering retirement. Our goal is to create vigorous neighborhoods and support the success of the families we serve while working with Athens-Clarke County for the development of long-term goals for affordable housing for the community.
