Who We Are
Housing Solutions Alliance (HSA) is a consulting company based in Dallas, Texas. The Company’s primary business is providing consulting services for public and assisted housing agencies and programs. The Company was created in February 1999 and organized as a Limited Liability Corporation (LLC) in July 1999. With the acquisition of P. Miller & Associates Computer Service, Inc., (Miller & Associates), a fee accounting company also based in Dallas, Texas, with an office in Iowa, Louisiana, in October 2002, we expanded our services to meet the variety of needs of most agencies.
What We Do
HSA currently provides fee accounting services for over 130 Housing Authority Programs in seven states. Our clients range in size from 10 units to approximately 600 units. The company’s experience in Low Rent, Section 8, and other HUD programs is extensive. The staff has an average of more than 10 years of affordable housing accounting experience. Our services go beyond fee accounting work. We work with our clients on a personal basis to help them meet the daily demands of managing a housing authority.
We specialize in providing accounting service in situations where the housing authority’s financial records are in disarray.
* HSA was hired by a housing authority, at HUD’s encouragement, to close the fiscal year when the agency’s fee accountant was unable to complete the fiscal year ending reports.
* HSA was hired to perform the accounting work for a housing authority that had not completed any bookwork for two years. The rental registers and financial records had to be reconstructed before the accounting could be brought up to date.
Because we work with so many programs, we keep up to date on all HUD rules and regulations, as well as employment, payroll, and tax laws. HSA receives all HUD Notices and transmittals. We maintain close contact with all HUD State Offices in the seven states Southwest NAHRO Region.
