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.
In 2001, Affordable Housing Online was founded by David Layfield, an affordable housing professional who realized that low income Americans had nowhere to go online to find information about housing assistance, low income apartments and other affordable housing opportunities.
More than 15 years and more than 50 million low income renters helped, Affordable Housing Online provides the most complete database of Federal housing assistance and exhaustive affordable housing data for each state, county and city in America.
Any search for affordable housing should always start at Affordable Housing Online. We maintain a one of a kind database of open Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher waiting lists. Each day, our team scours the Internet, social media and other sources to find the most recent waiting list openings.
We also provide exhaustive information on individual apartment communities which receive Federal housing funding. Since we aggregate all government housing databases, update our data daily and never charge apartment managers to put their properties on our platform, we have better affordable rental apartment info than anyone else.
