Please be informed the following information relates ONLY to ACHA Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCVP) Housing residents and property.

The ACHA has launched its new Applicant Portal. With an Applicant Portal account, applicants will be able to check their waiting list status, update their application information so the Housing Authority always has good correspondence addresses, and correspond with leasing agents. Upon completion of the Online Application process, applicants will be able to register for the Applicant Portal. However, the process of updating our online applications so they are integrated with our waiting list system occurs once daily, consequently new applicants will not be able to register for the portal until a day after they have applied to be sure their records have been processed by the system. Returning applicants who wish to apply for a new list will be required to register for Applicant Portal. Active applicants on Allegheny County Housing Authority waiting lists will be receiving an email with an invitation to register for Applicant Portal shortly. If you are an ACHA applicant and did not enter an email address during the application process, you can register for an Applicant Portal account here. Applicant Portal Login Link
