September 1st through September 30th – Data Validation
SHA’s data is being configured in Yardi and will undergo validation to ensure the transfer occurred accurately. Staff will be working to ensure a smooth transition for our October 1st transactions. There may be delays to some processes during this transition time. Letters are being sent with this basic information by Spetember 29.
Starting October 2nd – Registration Letters
Registration letters will initially be mailed or provided when visiting our offices. This will provide a code and the web address to sign up for your online portal access.
Rollout schedules as of 9/28/23 are:
If you should have received a registration letter but have not, please contact Customer Service (applicants, clients, and landlords), or your leasing office (tenants of SHA properties) after October 15th.

SHA realized our clients, tenants, landlords, and partners would benefit from moving processes online with secure portals for their specific needs. Additionally, we realized a need to change because of program changes, HUD regulations, and the diversity of our programs.
Funding for the software conversion comes from unrestricted funding and was approved by the Board of Commissioners in 2022.
