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.

Andrew Yang's 2020 Housing Plan

2020 Presidential Candidate Andrew Yang

Andrew Yang (D)

Andrew Yang is an entrepreneur, lawyer and philanthropist. He is founder of Venture for America, a nonprofit organization focused on creating jobs in struggling American cities. He does not have a detailed affordable housing plan, although he has proposed measures to reduce veteran homelessness. His Freedom Dividend, universal basic income of $1,000 per month for every adult American, would greatly benefit low-income renters.

This resource focuses on active 2020 Presidential Candidates. Recent changes or additions to Andrew Yang's housing policy proposals may not be reflected in this resource.
