History and Partners
California Affordable Housing Initiatives, Inc. ("CAHI") was formed as an instrumentality of the Oakland Housing Authority to enhance, preserve, develop and administer housing for HUD-defined low and moderate income families and individuals in California.
The primary purpose of CAHI is to administer Section 8 contracts within the State of California on behalf of HUD.
CAHI has CGI as its business-processing partner to perform many of the processing activities required under the Annual Contributions Contract (ACC). CGI Federal's BPS unit, working with its partners in Northern California, Ohio, New York, Florida and Washington D.C. is currently the largest HUD contractor for Section 8 Performance Based Contract Administration, processing over $1.8 Billion of housing assistance payments for over 250,000 units annually.
CAHI assumed contract administration duties for Northern California from HUD on October 1, 2004. The Northern California program encompasses almost 600 properties and 40,000 families.
