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.

2020 Presidential Candidate Tulsi Gabbard

Tulsi Gabbard (D)

Tulsi Gabbard is a four-term Congresswoman from Hawaii. She is a war veteran with two tours of duty in the Middle East and is currently a Major in the National Guard. She does not have a detailed affordable housing plan, but her campaign notes that she has worked hard to get federal funds for affordable housing in the House of Representatives, and has been a “strong advocate for affordable housing and protections.”
