Transfer Policy

Transfers are determined by the following criteria:

  • To address emergency situations;
  • To fully utilize available housing resources, while avoiding overcrowding by insuring that each family occupies the appropriate sized unit;
  • To facilitate relocation when required for modernization or other management purposes;
  • To facilitate relocation of families with inadequate housing accommodations;
  • To provide an incentive for families to assist in meeting the Aiken Housing Authority's deconcentration goals; and
  • To eliminate vacancy loss and other expenses due to unnecessary transfers.
