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.

Pete Buttigieg's 2020 Housing Plan

2020 Presidential Candidate Pete Buttigieg

Pete Buttigieg (D)

Pete Buttigieg has been the Mayor of South Bend, Indiana, since 2011. A Navy Lieutenant, he took a leave of absence from the mayor’s job to deploy to Afghanistan. His affordable housing plan includes $430 billion for the National Housing Trust Fund, the Capital Magnet Fund and other programs that will “unlock access to” affordable housing for 7 million households and build 2 million more affordable units. He also proposes to improve housing health and safety, increase homeownership opportunities by providing abandoned properties to eligible households, and remove barriers faced by formerly incarcerated people seeking public benefits, including affordable housing.


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