Fair Housing

It is the policy of AHFC to comply fully with all federal, state and local nondiscrimination laws, including the Fair Housing Act; Title VI of the Civil Rights Act; Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act; the Americans with Disabilities Act; and U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development regulations governing Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity.

No person shall on the grounds of age, race, color, sex, religion, national or ethnic origin, familial status, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or marital status be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under AHFC housing programs.

AHFC will provide information covering discriminatory practices and any recourse available to the family if they believe they are victims of illegal discrimination. All applicable Fair Housing information and discrimination complaint forms are available at AHFC offices.

Individuals should contact their local AHFC office if they need any assistance or additional information regarding any of the topics below.

Reasonable Accommodation

A reasonable accommodation is a change, exception or adjustment to a rule, policy, practice or service that may be necessary for a person with a disability to have an equal opportunity to use and enjoy a dwelling, including public- and common-use spaces. Alaska Housing must provide a requested accommodation unless doing so would result in a fundamental alteration in the nature of its program or an undue financial and administrative burden.

Limited English Proficiency

AHFC is committed to ensuring that Limited English Proficient (LEP) individuals have meaningful access to rental assistance information and/or services regardless of their ability to communicate in English. LEP individuals are defined as individuals that do not speak English as a primary language or are limited in their ability to read, write, speak or understand English.

AHFC Facilities

AHFC facilities (24 CFR 8.21) are designed to be readily accessible to and usable by people with disabilities. AHFC operates each program or activity receiving federal financial assistance so that the program or activity, when viewed in its entirety, is readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities.

MTW Plans and Reports

Alaska Housing Finance Corporation is a Public Housing Agency participating in the Moving to Work Demonstration Program created in Section 204 of the Omnibus Consolidated Rescissions and Appropriations Act of 1996. As a Moving to Work Agency, AHFC has the flexibility to design and test various approaches for providing and administering housing assistance that:

  1. Reduce cost and achieve greater cost effectiveness in federal expenditures;
  2. Give incentives to families with children whose heads of household are either working, seeking work or are participating in job training, educational or other programs that assist in obtaining employment and becoming economically self-sufficient; and
  3. Increase housing choices for low-income families.

Moving to Work agencies are permitted to request exemptions from provisions of the 1937 Housing Act as well as its implementing regulations. These agencies may also combine funds appropriated under sections 8 and 9 of the 1937 Housing Act.

Annual Plans

Plans are approved by the AHFC Board of Directors and transmitted to HUD approximately 75 days before the start of AHFC’s fiscal year (July 1) each year. A public hearing and public comment process are completed before each plan is submitted to the AHFC Board for approval.

Annual Reports

Reports are approved by the AHFC Board of Directors and transmitted to HUD approximately 90 days after the end of AHFC’s fiscal year (June 30) each year.

Utility Allowances

As a public housing authority, AHFC is required to maintain a schedule of utility allowances for all tenant-paid utilities. Schedules are developed based on the typical cost of utilities and services paid by energy-conservative households that occupy housing of similar size and type in the same locality. AHFC uses normal patterns of consumption for each community and current utility rates.
