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.

Michael Bloomberg's 2020 Housing Plan

2020 Presidential Candidate Michael Bloomberg

Michael Bloomberg (D)

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg served as Mayor of New York City from 2001-2013. His campaign touts his record as Mayor, pointing to the drop in crime, economic growth with creation of 400,000 jobs, improved air quality and mass transit, and supporting anti-poverty programs that became national models. He does not have a specific affordable housing plan, but his campaign points to his oversight of affordable housing construction and preservation in the city. The campaign also notes his support of inclusionary zoning and foreclosure assistance.

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