The Alexandria Redevelopment and Housing Authority (ARHA), which administers federally-subsidized public housing, provides the majority of housing options for households making 30 percent or less of the area median income (AMI) — $33,000 or less for a family of four. Claridge House and Annie B. Rose, which provide low-income housing for seniors, utilize “Section 8” vouchers, also a federal program. Sheltered Homes of Alexandria is a nonprofit.
