The NAHMA Educational Foundation is accepting applications for scholarships to be awarded to worthy student residents in 2020. This year will be the 14th consecutive year that the foundation has made scholarships available. The deadline for completed applications is 10 p.m. Eastern on Friday, May 15, 2020, Last year, over 70% of applicants filing a completed application received a scholarship. Go to nahma.communityforce.com for more information or see the attached flyer.
Eligibility for the program requires that an applicant be a resident in good standing at an AHMA/NAHMA affiliated apartment community and be either a high school senior with a minimum GPA of 2.5, a general equivalency diploma holder or a matriculated student with a minimum GPA of 2.3 at an accredited college or trade/technical school. The foundation will no longer accept applications from students in graduate-level programs.
The process requires applicants to complete the online application form, as well as provide two academic and/or professional references, an essay and a certification of residency in good standing form. A grade transcript through the fall 2019 is also necessary and is the only application component sent via U.S. mail to the foundation. All necessary forms are provided within the web-based application and no hard copies are needed.
Anyone with questions about the application process or the scholarship program in general should contact Dr. Bruce W. Johnson, NAHMA scholarship program administrator, at 215-262-4230 or at bjohnson@tmo.com.

WOW!Thank you to the Aberdeen Community for support during these tough times. Today as part of the Small Act - Big Impact campaign we sold $212,000 worth of gifts. This money will go directly to the businesses during these trying times.
Thanks in part to our generous donors who paid over $90,000 in matching funds we were overwhelmed with the response and received over 8,000 in the first 4 hours alone!

Thanks Hub City Radio News - Aberdeen, SD for your partnership with this campaign!

History and Development

In November 1969 the City Commission adopted, pursuant to the Housing Authority Law, a resolution to establish a “Housing and Redevelopment Commission” for the city of Aberdeen. Effective January 1, 1970, the first Housing Commissioners were appointed. The Mayor appoints housing commissioners for 5 year terms. They are volunteer, non-paid citizens who contribute substantial time, interest, and effort in overseeing the operation of the Housing Authority according to the rules and regulations passed on from congressional enforcements. Meetings are held once a month, with special meetings as authorized by the Bylaws. The Aberdeen Housing Authority staff completes verifications of each resident’s income and medical expenses, if applicable, no less than every 12 months.

The Aberdeen Housing and Redevelopment Commission administers low-rent, subsidized housing programs in Brown, McPherson, Marshall, Day and Roberts counties.
