FHA Software started out in 1982 as a simple DOS-based program and has since evolved into being the 100% Windows-based program that it is now. The current FHA Software for Windows version runs great in the latest Windows Operating Systems (XP, 2000, VISTA. 7, 8, & 10) and Windows-based computer hardware (such as printers & modems). FHA Software has a long, successful history of providing RHS/HUD/LIHTC automation compliance and continues to be supported by the very same people that created it, back in 1982. Let FHA Software simplify your electronic compliance.
FHA Software automates affordable housing management compliance for Rural Development (RHS), Department of HUD and Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) project types. One program does it all, without modules and flawed integration. FHA Software is completely menu-driven and easy to learn. Program options are always presented. No hidden keys to memorize. No new computer terms to learn. FHA Software continually monitors for RHS/HUD/LIHTC occupancy requirement discrepancies and advises the user when they occur. FHA Software is not a form filler program and there's no duplication of tenant data. FHA Software is also not locked in time. All project changes (Rent Rates, Income Limits, Dependent Allowances, Elderly Allowances, Passbook Savings Rates, etc.) are maintained in chronological history, allowing the user to process any form or report for any time period, past, current or future. All Tenant Certifications processed in FHA Software are also maintained in chronological history and can be revised at any time, without effecting future changes.
Since it was first marketed in 1985, smart RHS/HUD/LIHTC managers have turned to FHA Software for simple, powerful and complete automation solutions, backed by 30 years of hands-on project management experience.
