04/01/2022Triennial Recertifications for All Families

Please be aware that the San Antonio Housing Authority (SAHA) is updating schedules for recertifications effective after August 1, 2022. Moving forward, all recertifications will be completed on a triennial schedule, meaning that assisted families' recertifications will take place every three (3) years instead of every two (2) years.

Even though your assisted families may not have a recertification at this time, you may still submit a request for rental increase to SAHA. Please note that only one request for rental increase will be processed within a 12-month period.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Customer Service at (210) 477-6000.
