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.

Elizabeth Warren's 2020 Housing Plan

2020 Presidential Candidate Elizabeth Warren

Elizabeth Warren (D)

Elizabeth Warren has been a Senator from Massachusetts since 2012. Prior to her election to the Senate, she spent 30 years as a law professor at some of the nation’s most prestigious schools, including Harvard University. Her affordable housing plan focuses on producing more units to address the affordable housing crisis. She would expand funding for the National Housing Trust Fund, USDA rural rental and homeownership programs,downpayment assistance, and the Capital Magnet Fund. Her plan would also create a grant program for local roads, schools and parks as long as local governments removed regulations that limit new affordable housing. She also proposes expanding fair housing protections.
