Coronavirus Resources for Low Income Households

Last updated on November 24th, 2020

On March 27th, 2020 President Trump signed into law the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, commonly referred to as the CARES Act. The bipartisan legislation passed 96-0 in the Senate on March 25th and was passed by the House of Representatives by voice vote shortly before being signed by the President.

The CARES Act is the third piece of legislation enacted by the federal government in response to the coronavirus pandemic and includes provisions that directly affect American households. Most popular is the authorization of direct payments to Americans to help cover household costs and boost the struggling economy. Advocates hope a sweeping expansion of unemployment insurance is enough to help working families in an economy that saw over 3 million new unemployment claims in the days leading up to the passage of this legislation.

Affordable Housing Online will continue monitoring the state's and federal government's response to the COVID-19 outbreak and maintain a list of resources to help low income households navigate critical services during this unprecedented time. 

Waiting List Updates

Affordable Housing Online will continue to cover the latest information on open, postponed, or cancelled Section 8 and Public Housing waiting lists.

Most Public Housing Agencies across the nation are closing their doors to the public but 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. We encourage those with specific questions for housing authorities to visit the agency's website for the latest on its current operations, if one is available. If there is no information online, contact the housing authority directly. However, 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. 

We have published a Public Housing Agency directory for each state to help low-income renters find agency websites, contact information, and the latest waiting list updates.

Despite a national eviction moratorium ordered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to protect low-income renters during the coronavirus pandemic, evictions for nonpayment of rent have continued around the country. Evictions in some areas are being permitted by local courts; and renters in Kansas City, Missouri, have fought back.

Trump administration favors landlords in guidance on eviction moratorium (October 22, 2020)

The Trump administration has undercut COVID-19 eviction protections provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), by releasing guidance that heavily favors landlords. This change will give landlords new tools to push renters out and accelerate eviction proceedings for many renters in the midst of the pandemic.

Evictions surged when protections lifted, low-income renters lack legal counsel (October 8, 2020)

Eviction filings surged in August and September, during the short time there was no federal eviction moratorium in place. And corporate eviction filings even continued after the current eviction moratorium was ordered by the CDC. This gives us a preview of the eviction crisis that low-income renters may face in January.

House keeps housing assistance a priority for coronavirus relief (October 2, 2020)

House Democrats introduced a compromise $2.2 trillion coronavirus stimulus bill this week. With Congress set to break for recess before the national election, bill sponsors hope it will provide a starting point for negotiations on a new aid package.

Millions still need to claim their coronavirus stimulus checks (September 28, 2020)

The pandemic is making it harder for survivors of domestic violence (September 24, 2020)

In the best of times, survivors of domestic violence face a lot of challenges finding safe shelter. The coronavirus pandemic has made things much worse. Stay at home orders keep survivors closed up with their abusers. Shelters have to reduce capacity or close because of social distancing rules. However, crisis hotlines and shelter operators are coming up with creative ways to connect with domestic violence survivors and get them to safe places.

Congress deadlocked on more coronavirus relief (September 21, 2020)

Negotiations between congressional leaders and the White House over a new coronavirus stimulus package are at a standstill. Congress will leave town in a couple of weeks for the final month of the campaign...It is looking more likely that any pandemic relief that helps low-income renters may not happen until after the November elections.

CDC orders national eviction moratorium until end of year (September 3, 2020)

The Trump administration acted on Tuesday to temporarily halt evictions for most Americans due to the coronavirus pandemic. This move will provide critical protection for millions of low-income renters and homeowners on the brink of losing their homes. Without emergency rental assistance, though, the order only pushes out the date when millions of low-income families will owe months of back rent.

Carson approves flexibility for CDBG CARES Act Funds (August 19, 2020)

New flexibility of CARES Act funding being used by HUD has been approved by Secretary Ben Carson, as announced by a HUD press release last Friday. These are Community Development Block Grant (CDBG-CV) funds, which are used across the country to help local communities that are struggling during the coronavirus pandemic.

Trump executive orders will not help workers or stop evictions (August 18, 2020)

President Trump issued executive orders last weekend that he promised would help jobless workers. He made this move, he said, because of the stalemate in Congress over the next coronavirus stimulus package. But these orders are just more false promises from a president who has hurt millions with his mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic.

Low-income, minority, and immigrant renters hurt by Trump cutting census short (August 10, 2020)

The U.S. Census Bureau will cut short the time for the 2020 Census count by a month, which will leave millions of people uncounted; most of those being low-income, minority, and immigrant households. This cynical move by the Trump administration will short-change states and cities with large minority or immigrant populations for a decade.

Trump fans race and class tensions as HUD guts key fair housing rule (August 5, 2020)

The Trump administration abruptly terminated a key fair housing regulation last week that required states and cities to reduce historic patterns of housing segregation. This rule change will allow local governments to continue policies that restrict housing choice for low-income and minority renters.

Report shows that affordable housing is “Out of Reach” everywhere in the country (July 28, 2020)

A new report shows that even before the coronavirus pandemic there is no place in the country where a full-time minimum wage worker can afford a modest apartment. With millions already paying more than half of what they earn for rent, the Out of Reach 2020 annual report by the National Low-Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) shows that the economic crisis caused by the pandemic will put millions of low-income renters at risk of losing their homes.

Trump Admin again proposes rule that will hurt homeless transgender persons (July 23, 2020)

American renters want housing assistance during the pandemic (June 16, 2020)

Low-income renters across the country are at risk of losing their homes because of the coronavirus pandemic.

HUD report shows housing programs serve those with the lowest incomes (June 2, 2020)

A recent HUD report shows that even though HUD programs reach a fraction of those who qualify, tenants in HUD-assisted housing are among the poorest and most vulnerable in our nation. HUD’s report, Characteristics of HUD-Assisted Renters and Their Units in 2017, is the tenth report in this series since 1989, and allows HUD to track changes in where assisted housing is located and who is living there. In 2017, HUD provided rental subsidies to 4,540,000 households.

Former inmates face housing discrimination during the pandemic (May 22, 2020)

Prisons and jails around the country have become COVID-19 hot spots. In an effort to decompress correctional facilities, many state and local governments are allowing early release of some inmates. Those being released face the same problems finding housing as anyone else leaving the criminal justice system. However, they can also face discrimination because landlords fear exposure to the coronavirus.

HEROES Act would give a lot of support to low-income renters (May 15, 2020)

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) unveiled the Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions (HEROES) Act this week.

At $3 trillion, it would surpass the recent CARES Act as the largest aid package in U.S. history.

Housing experts say landlords cannot reject or evict tenants over coronavirus fears (May 8, 2020)

Low-income renters face all kinds of roadblocks to finding affordable housing. For many, discrimination has historically been an obstacle to getting and keeping a decent place to live. With fears growing as the coronavirus pandemic spreads, can landlords evict tenants or deny applicants because they might be at risk for COVID-19? Most fair housing experts agree the Fair Housing Act says they cannot.

House lawmakers push national eviction ban and rent suspension (May 1, 2020)

Homeless persons face the worst of the coronavirus pandemic (April 23, 2020)

Need for emergency rental assistance grows during the coronavirus pandemic (April 15, 2020)

Some members of Congress are calling for a bold federal commitment to emergency rental assistance during the coronavirus pandemic. Although many states have temporarily suspended evictions, just protecting low-income renters during the crisis is not enough. When the eviction orders are eventually lifted, renters will still be on the hook for months of unpaid rent, and could still lose their homes.

Infrastructure program at risk of Trump cuts gets big boost to help communities during pandemic (April 10, 2020)

Calls grow for rent forgiveness as governments order businesses to close (April 3rd, 2020)

Important Updates on Stimulus Payments For Low Income Households

Under Section 2201 of the CARES Act, the federal government will be issuing a stimulus payment to individuals in the form of a one-time tax rebate.The payment will be based on 2018 tax returns or, for those who have already filed, 2019 tax returns. The amount will be determined by your filing status and your adjusted gross income. Those claimed as dependents of another tax-payer are not eligible for the direct payment.

    Notice for Low Income Households and those receiving Social Security or Disability Benefits

    Previously, the Treasury Department stated that those receiving Social Security or railroad retirement benefits would have to file a simple tax return for this payment, but this requirement was waived on April 1st. “Social Security recipients who are not typically required to file a tax return do not need to take an action, and will receive their payment directly to their bank account,” Secretary Mnuchin stated in a press release.

    However, those who do not receive social security or railroad retirement benefits may still be required to complete a simple return to receive a direct deposit if they do not typically file taxes. 

    April 15th, 2020 Update

    As of April 15th, 2020, the IRS Has published a method for Non-Filers to provide the information required for the Economic Impact Payment. If the IRS does not have your direct deposit information, you can submit it through the official online portal hereNote: This is the only valid website where you can submit this information. If any other web page claims it can be used for this purpose, it is fraudulent.
     

    When will I receive the Stimulus Payment?

    Comments from Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin suggest the first direct deposit payments will be made by April 17th. Based on the information published by the IRS, the order in which individuals will receive their one-time payment may be as follows:

    1. People who have filed taxes in 2019 or in 2018 and have elected for direct deposit will likely receive their payment first by April 17th.
    2. First time filers who provide direct deposit information to the IRS through the web tool will likely receive their payments in the weeks following April 17th based on the date information was provided.
    3. Those who have already filed their taxes but elected a return method other then direct deposit may also use the web tool to request a direct deposit of this stimulus payment and likewise receive their payment in the weeks following April 17th based on the date information was provided.
    4. The IRS has not published a time frame for those receiving paper checks for those who have not been able to provide direct deposit information. However, an IRS spokesperson told the Washington Post that the plan is to begin distributing paper checks to the lowest earners on April 24th, starting with those earning less than $10,000.

    CARES Act Cash Payment Amounts

    • Those who filed their latest tax return as single with income less than $75,000 are eligible for a one-time payment of $1,200.
    • Those who filed their latest tax return as a head of household with income less than $112,500 are eligible for a one-time payment of $1,200 plus an additional $500 per dependent child.
    • Those who jointly filed their latest tax returns as married with income less than $150,000 are eligible for a one-time payment of $1,200 plus an additional $500 per dependent child.

    CARES Act Cash Payment Income Limits
    For those who earn above the threshold for their filing status, payments will decrease as earned income increases. The payment amount decreases by $5 for every $100 in income above the threshold.

    • Those who filed their latest tax return as single with income greater than $99,000 are not eligible for the payment.
    • Those who filed their latest tax return as a head of household with income greater than $136,500 are not eligible for the payment.
    • Those who jointly filed their latest tax returns as married with income greater than $198,000 are not eligible for the payment.

    Unemployment Benefits Under the CARES Act

    Title II, Subtitle A of the CARES Act includes an emergency expansion of unemployment benefits for those who lose work during the coronavirus outbreak.

    Key provisions of the title include a $600 weekly increase in payments, less strict unemployment eligibility requirements, and a 13-week extension of unemployment benefits beyond the period determined by the states.

    Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA)

    Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) is a temporary federal program that extends qualification of unemployment benefits for those who become fully or partially unemployed, or unable or unavailable to work due to COVID-19 on or after January 27, 2020; and are not eligible to receive or have already exhausted traditional unemployment compensation programs.

    For more information:

    Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC)

    COVID-19 Help and Guidance for Landlords

    Landlords, property managers, and administrators of affordable housing properties have taken many precautions to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. This is a challenge for many housing providers, since many federally-assisted properties are comprised of several units within close proximity of each other.

    Here are the steps that landlords, property managers, and housing administrators are taking to protect their single-family unit or apartments, following the guidelines of the CDC:

    1. Limit Office Availability
      To limit or avoid public interaction, many offices run by affordable housing providers have limited the hours they are open to the public, or have outright closed their offices to public visitors. Offices with limited hours sometimes require public visitors to schedule an appointment ahead of time, and will not allow walk-ins. Office visitors are expected to wear a mask, and follow social distancing guidelines. Offices that are closed to the public have drop boxes installed in the outside of the building, so residents and applicants can still submit paperwork by hand. All offices have continued to be available for communication by phone, email, mail, etc. There are also some offices that have all or some staff working remotely.
    2. Limit Use of Common Areas
      Following social distancing guidelines, common areas may be closed to the public, or have limited hours/occupancy. If common areas are being used, follow CDC cleaning procedures (Step 4).
    3. Stay in Communication
      To help residents prevent the spread of coronavirus, affordable housing offices have maintained transparency about best practices to stay safe, and company policies that have been updated or created because of COVID-19. These notices may be in the form of an email, website update, text message, flyer, letter, etc.
    4. Clean and Disinfect Public Areas
      If coronavirus contamination is suspected or confirmed, the CDC has written cleaning tips for public areas. Tips include:
      • How to clean and disinfect hard and soft surfaces, electronics, and linens
      • Recommendations for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and Hand Hygiene
      • Additional Considerations for Employers
    5. Clean and Disinfect Living Areas
      Housing providers and residents can follow these CDC tips on how to clean and disinfect homes. Tips include:
      • Cleaning
      • Disinfecting
      • Soft surfaces
      • Electronics
      • Laundry
      • Clean hands often
      • HVAC, ventilation, and filtration
      • When someone is sick
    6. Protect Yourself and Others
      Help personally limit the spread of COVID-19 by following these standard CDC recommendations. Tips include:
      • Wash your hands often
      • Avoid close contact
      • Cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around others
      • Cover coughs and sneezes
      • Clean and disinfect
      • Monitor your health daily

    CDC Recommendations to Protect You, Your Family, and Your Community

    We encourage everyone to stay informed and follow the recommendations published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to prepare and protect yourself and your family:

    1. Stay informed on local trends of COVID-19 cases and be wary of misinformation and rumors

    It is critical to stay informed and be aware of false information and bad actors during this crisis. Misinformation and fraudulent services can be accidentally shared on social media by people with good intentions. Affordable Housing Online suggests using the following resources to stay informed and help control harmful rumors about COVD-19:

    2. Know The Symptoms of Infection

    The most common symptoms of coronavirus are fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Based on best available information, the CDC estimates these symptoms may start to appear 2 to 14 days after infection. 

    The CDC recommends seeking immediate medical attention for persons experiencing trouble breathing, persistent chest pain or pressure, confusion, or bluish lips or face.

    3. Understand Who is at Higher Risk for Severe Complications

    The CDC identifies the following groups as high risk for severe illness from COVID-19:

    • People aged 65 years and older
    • People who live in a nursing home or long-term care facility
    • Persons with high-risk conditions including:
      • Chronic lung disease
      • Moderate to severe asthma
      • Serious heart conditions
      • Compromised immune system, including patients undergoing cancer treatment or treatments using immune weakening medications
      • Severe obesity or uncontrolled conditions such as diabetes, renal failure, or liver disease
    • People who are pregnant 

    4. Protect Yourself, Your Family, and Those at Higher Risk

    Stay informed on the best practices to prevent illness and protect yourself and those around you. Until otherwise reported by the CDC, be wary of reports of a vaccine for COVID-19. The CDC plainly states, "There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)."

    To protect yourself:

    • Clean Your Hands Often: The CDC recommends cleaning your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not immediately accessible, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. 
    • Avoid Close Contact: Avoid contact with people who are sick, especially when COVID-19 is spreading in your community.

    To protect others and those at high-risk:

    • Stay Home Except to Get Medical Care: If you are sick, you risk the health and safety of others by going out.
    • Cover Coughs and Sneezes: COVID-19 spreads from person to person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Help prevent additional spread by covering your nose and mouth. Always wash your hands after coughing or sneezing.
    • Wear a Facemask If You are Sick: People who are sick should wear a facemask when they are close to others, like when sharing a vehicle or a room. People who are not sick should not wear facemasks unless you are caring for a sick person. Facemasks are in short supply and are desperately needed by healthcare professionals and caregivers.
    • Clean and Disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces: follow the CDC's guidance on how to properly disinfect to help prevent the spread of illness.
