Affordable Housing Online is monitoring the federal government's response to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak. As of March 13, 2020, Public Housing Agencies across the nation are closing their doors to the public. Most offices are still running and will communicate by phone, email, or mail. Some offices have drop boxes installed outside, so documents can still be hand-delivered. Visit the housing authority's website for the latest on its current operations, if one is available. If there is no information online, contact the housing authority directly. Due to a high volume of calls and modified office hours in most areas, expect a long wait time (days or weeks) for a response. To find your local PHA's contact info, browse by state here.

An extensive list of coronavirus resources for low-income households can be found here.

Amy Klobuchar's 2020 Housing Plan

Amy Klobuchar (D)

Amy Klobuchar is a Senator from Minnesota, serving since 2006. Prior to the Senate, she served for 8 years as the Hennepin County Attorney. Her affordable housing plan primarily calls for existing programs to receive greater funding, provide downpayment assistance to promote homeownership, promote rural.affordable housing development, and expand access to affordable senior housing. Her plan would also increase tenant rights, expand a voucher mobility program that helps low-income renters move to high-opportunity neighborhoods and make a major investment in homelessness assistance grants.
