Celebrating 75 Years of Housing Excellence!
Before the onset of World War II, it became apparent that the nation would be drawn into the war and housing would be required for the defense workers, thus came into being the Defense Housing Program. It was during this time that the Alabama Association was formed. A group of seven Housing Authority Commissioners and Executive Directors (from Birmingham, Montgomery, Mobile, Phenix City, Anniston and Gadsden) met in Montgomery on January 15, 1940.
And so the Alabama Association of Housing & Redevelopment Authorities was formed and has grown into one of the largest and most respected housing associations in the country!
